St. Charles names recommendation for new police chief

ST. CHARLES – City Administrator Mark Koenen is expected to recommend the appointment of a new police chief at Monday's St. Charles City Council meeting.

James T. Keegan was selected from a pool of 75 applicants that was eventually narrowed down to two, Koenen said.

"We had strong candidates," he said.

The last round of interviews included the city's elected officials, Koenen said, so he expects Keegan's appointment to be unanimous.

Pending City Council approval, Keegan's first day will be June 30, and he will be officially sworn in as chief on July 7.
