Moline has chosen a new police chief. Tuesday night the city council approved a recommendation from the city administrator to hire Darren Gault, currently a captain for the East Moline Police Department.
Gault joined the East Moline department in 1998 and since then has held a variety of jobs, including patrol officer and detective sergeant, plus he was a member for several years of the QC Federal Gang Task Force.
He'll replace Robert Finney who's served as Interim Chief since late last year when John Hitchcock retired following his arrest for driving under the influence.
Gault's official starting date in Moline will be July 31st.
