Sidney has new chief of police

Posted: Updated:

The city of Sidney in the Nebraska Panhandle has named a police chief from Illinois as its new leader.
 
Byron "B.J.'' Wilkinson was chosen as the city's new police chief after several months of searching to replace Mike Brown. Brown resigned to move to Kansas for personal family matters.
 
A 20 year- law enforcement veteran, Wilkinson was police chief of Litchfield, Illinois for the past decade.

In a press release, Sidney City Manager Gary Person says Wilkinson will operate a police department with a $1 million budget, as well as 14 sworn officers and two civilian employees.
 
Wilkinson plans to begin his new job toward the end of July.
