POOLER, Ga. (WSAV) — It’s the day residents and the Pooler Police Department have been waiting for–Pooler’s new police chief will officially step into his new role this week.
Ashley Brown was sworn in as Pooler’s new police chief at the city hall on March 26. Brown is a 24-year-veteran of the Savannah Police Department and has more than a dozen law enforcement honors.
