PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- A Michigan man with nearly three decades of police experience is being hired as Prescott Valley's new police chief.

Officials in the northern Arizona town announced Friday that Bryan Jarrell is getting the job.

Prescott Valley Town Manager Larry Tarkowski says the 53-year-old Jarrell was among three finalists for the $119,000-a-year position.

The Daily Courier reports that Jarrell will start Nov. 25.

Jarrell was a 28-year veteran of the Southfield (Mich.) Police Department and deputy chief of police for the investigations division since 2007.

Prescott Valley Police Chief Bill Fessler retired on March 15. He left the job after fallout from a bar fight in December involving a biker gang made up of police officers.
