NEWPORT — A former Maine police chief is taking a new job as a full-time officer in Newport.

Kenny Williams said he wanted to move to a department where he wasn’t the administrator.

Williams became chief in Milo two years ago. He gave no reason when he resigned this spring.

On Wednesday, Newport police chief Leonard Macdaid introduced Williams as one of two new, full-time officers in his community.

Newport now has 12 officers, seven full-time and five part-time.

The Bangor Daily News says Macdaid feels Williams and the other new officer, Phillip Boyd, will do great jobs.
