The City of Chillicothe is moving forward in seeking to fill the vacancy of police chief, following he firing of Roger Moore.

Mayor Jack Everson says the new chief will be determined by a civil service exam, as is required by law.

Former chief, Roger Moore, says the city has until September 5th to reinstate his job, or face legal action.

Moore claims the city is retaliating against him due to his being awarded an Ohio Workers Compensation claim he filed in the 2012 death of his wife, a former city firefighter that died from cancer.
