CASEYVILLE, Ill. (KSDK) - There's a new police chief in Caseyville, Ill.
The mayor named Jose Alvarez to fill the post made vacant by the suicide of the previous chief. Alvarez previously served as deputy chief of investigations with the St. Clair County State's Attorney's Office.
Former chief J.D. Roth died in June from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his Fairview Heights home. Prosecutors had charged him with felony misconduct.
Alvarez will be sworn in Wednesday.
