East Peoria Appoints Interim Police Chief

City of East Peoria
Rich Brodrick takes the oath to become East Peoria's new interim chief of police.

Rich Brodrick is the new interim chief of the East Peoria Police Department.
The appointment comes after Steve Roegge resigned last Friday after a little less than two years on the job. He previously served 31 years in Peoria before retiring from that city's police department.

It's unclear why Roegge stepped down with time still remaining on his contract.

Brodrick was previously a deputy chief in East Peoria. The city council will formally vote on Tuesday to approve his interim appointment as head of the department.
