Atlantic Beach Gets A New Police Chief

Atlantic Beach has a new police chief.

Jeffery W. Harvey takes over following the retirement of Chief Allen Smith.

Chief Smith is retiring after a 38 year career in law enforcement.

Harvey has been a member of the town's police department for 11 years. Prior to his involvement in law enforcement, Harvey served 21 years in the U.S. Navy.

A farewell luncheon for Chief Smith was held at the DoubleTree Hilton in Atlantic Beach Friday where Harvey took the oath of office.

Smith says he'll take some time off to travel with family and then return to a part time position with the Carteret County Sheriff's Office.
