Jerald Monahan to be Prescott's new police chief

Updated:

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Prescott is getting a new police chief.

City officials announced Wednesday that Jerald Monahan has accepted the job.

His hiring is contingent upon successful completion of background checks.

Monahan currently is Apache Junction's police chief.

He was selected from a pool of 30 applicants for the Prescott position.

City officials say Monahan comes to Prescott with more than 30 years of public safety experience. He was recently inducted as president of the Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police.

Monahan holds a master's degree with an emphasis in public safety management as well as a bachelor's degree in public safety administration from Grand Canyon University.

He's expected to start as Prescott's police chief in mid-March at the latest. That's because his current position in Apache Junction requires a 30-day notice.
