TROY, Ala. (WDHN) — Troy University plans to announce its new pick for its chief of police this Wednesday.

Dr. John Schmidt, Senior Vice Chancellor for Student Services, will be joined by State Troopers’ Chief Charles Ward and Montgomery County Sheriff Derrick Cunningham in a conference announcing the new chief. The three were on the committee to search for a replacement for the previous chief, John McCall.

Troy University fired McCall four months ago following controversial remarks he made on Facebook regarding the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The conference will take place at the Hall of Honor at 10 a.m.
