Twin Lakes has a new police chief.

Katie Hall, who was a captain on the department and was serving as interim chief, was sworn in as chief of the Twin Lakes Police Department by village Clerk Sabrina Waswo at a special Village Board meeting Monday.

Hall succeeds Adam Grosz, who retired in May as chief.

Hall has been with the department since 2010, working her way up the ranks and fulfilling a variety of duties.
