by Your Alaska Link News Team

A Bethel police lieutenant has been named as the town's police chief.

Reports say Andre Achee had been working as acting chief since spring.

Achee replaces former chief Larry Elarton, who resigned after serving at the top spot since 2008.

Achee has worked for the Bethel Police Department for more than 20 years. In that time, he served nine years as a lieutenant.

His new position is official Friday.
