ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) – The St. Louis County Police Board announced Friday that Jon Belmar will be the next chief.

Belmar is replacing Tim Fitch who announced his retirement in December.

Board Chairman Roland Covington told KMOX he looked inside his department and found three lieutenant colonels to fill Fitch’s shoes. He was looking for a person with “leadership, experience in management, planning and organizing.”

Kenneth Cox and Kenneth Gregory were also considered for the position.
