(KNZA)-- A new Horton Chief of Police has been hired.

Horton City Administrator John Calhoon told MSC News that the City Commission Monday evening officially hired Dennis Entriken for the position.

He is to begin work today ( Wednesday, October 18).

Entriken, who was raised in Horton and graduated from Horton High School, has more than 20 years of law enforcement experience. He has served with the Sabetha Police Department, Hiawatha Police Department and Nemaha County Sheriff's Office.

Entriken was among five candidates interviewed by the city commission last month.

The position came open following the resignation of former Chief of Police Jonathan Boller in August.

Assistant Police Chief Cody Spire has been overseeing the department since the resignation.
