ALCOA (WATE) - A new Alcoa police chief was named Tuesday, replacing former Chief Ken Burge who passed away in July.

Alcoa City manager Mark Johnson says Phillip Potter of Huntersville, N.C. was selected for the police chief position.

Potter began his career with the Piqua, Ohio police department as a patrol officer in 1974 and made his way through the ranks, eventually becoming chief in 1992. He served in that capacity for 11 years.

He accepted the position of chief of police in Huntersville in 2004, holding that position until his retirement in August.

He is expected to assume the chief position the first week of December.
