Chad Grace Named Cadiz Police Chief
By WestKyStar Staff
CADIZ, KY - Sgt. Chad Grace has been named the new Cadiz police chief. The appointment was made official by Cadiz City Council at their Tuesday night meeting and takes effect immediately.
He was sworn in at the meeting by former police chief and current Trigg County Judge-executive Hollis Alexander.
Grace, 33, graduated from the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training Police Academy in 2003. He previously worked at the Christian County Sheriff’s Department and Todd County Sheriff’s Department. He was hired at the Cadiz Police Department in 2006 and was promoted to sergeant in 2012.
Grace was one of three Cadiz police officers who applied for the chief’s position.
“I am appreciative of the council’s confidence in me, and look forward to leading the police department in the years ahead,” Chief Grace said.
The Cadiz Police Department has six full-time officers and four part-time officers, including a school resource officer assigned to the Trigg County School System. Chief Grace said one of his first priorities will be to hire another full-time officer to bring the department up to full force.
“I don’t foresee many changes in how the department is run, and I think that is a testament to how Chief Alexander ran the department here,” Chief Grace said.
