Elon police chief names assistant chief

Elon’s police chief Kelly Blackwelder introduces her newest assistant chief, Kedrick King, to Elon’s town council on Tuesday.

A one-time Caswell County sheriff’s deputy, King initially joined Elon’s campus police force in 2014 before transferring to the town’s municipal police department, where he has quickly climbed through the ranks. King has now been tapped to serve as the department’s assistant chief over operations.
