A new police chief has been named for the central Kansas city of Russell.
The Hays Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/XD4kEN ) that Dale Weimaster will serve as police chief for the city of about 4,500 people. He replaces Jon Quinday, who had served as police chief until he was named interim city manager. Quinday has since become city manager.
Weimaster is a lifelong Russell resident. He joined the Police Department as a patrolman in 1994 and was named captain in 2009.
He's expected to be sworn in Friday.
