OGDEN, N.Y. (WHEC) — The town of Ogden has a new top cop.

The town board appointed Sergeant Travis Gray as the next police chief on Wednesday night.

Gray has served in the Ogden police department since 2011 and received numerous awards, including the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Lifesaving Award. Among other trainings and certifications, Gray just graduated from the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia on Tuesday, Sept. 13.

“I couldn’t be more proud and excited to welcome OPD-veteran Sergeant Travis Gray as the next chief of the Ogden Police Department,” said Ogden Town Supervisor Mike Zale. “Travis’s commitment to public safety and community service is evident each day and I have complete faith in the vision he has for the future of the department. He knows and loves our town and is respected by members of the OPD and our entire community. I’m confident he will lead with the same integrity and professionalism that Chief Chris Mears has for so many years.”

Gray will begin serving as chief on Monday, Sept. 19.
