The former top two officers in Clearfield's police department were appointed as deputy Davis County constables Monday. Former chief Daren Green and his former second-in-command, Lt. Steve Hill, were approved as deputy constables by the county commissioners.
The two resigned their Clearfield posts Nov. 27 after a closed meeting with city officials. Neither man said at the time why he had quit, but both indicated they wished to pursue careers in law enforcement.As deputy constables, they will serve court judgments and other warrants, both for law enforcement agencies and courts and for private attorneys. Their appointment was requested by constable Mark Sessions.
In the wake of the resignations, the city first appointed city attorney Larry Waggoner as police chief. A department member, Kev-in Edwards, is currently the acting chief, and the city is still looking for a full-time chief.
