ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOX) – St. Charles may soon have an interim police chief.
Captain Lawrence Stulce has been recommended for the job. Former Chief Dennis Corely resigned last month after the police board voted no confidence. Captain Stulce is currently assigned as the Commander of the Bureau of Drug Enforcement, and the Multijurisdictional Drug Task Force.
Administration Director Michael Spurgeon helped choose Stulce. He says his drug enforcement experience was a plus, but it was his experience in other areas of police work that made him a well-rounded candidate.
The St. Charles City Council will have to approve Stulce on Tuesday before he can begin acting, and if approved he will be sworn in on May 15th. A permanent Police Chief could be in place as early as 6 months from now. Spurgeon says Mayor Sally Faith will assemble a committee to help choose the new police chief.
