The Mooresville Police Department is actively seeking a new police chief.

Less than two weeks after Damon Williams, who was on paid administrative leave at the time, resigned, the department has begun advertising for the position.

Williams had been on paid leave since June as an independent agency, U.S. ISS of Huntersville, conducted an investigation into a hostile work environment. The results of that investigation have been handed over to the town of Mooresville attorney, town manager and HR department, but the town says those will not be made publicly available.

Ron Campurciani was announced as acting police chief June 17. Last week, the town said it would soon announce plans for filling the role. Over the weekend it began advertising the position.

According to the ad, the town seeks a police chief with a salary range of $82,428 to $128,914.

The ad states that the town seeks an “innovative and civic-minded police chief to direct and lead” the law enforcement program. The role includes the “protection of life and property through a variety of enforcement, detection and prevention programs,” planning of emergency response and managerial and administrative duties “including the establishment of policy, evaluation and attainment of strategic goals, budget preparation and management and supervision of all department personnel.”

Requirements include possession of or ability to obtain a North Carolina driver’s license within three months, to have or be able to obtain an intermediate law enforcement certificate issued by North Carolina Justice Training and Standards Commission and completion of a department approved Command level school within one year of promotion. Applications are being accepted through Dec. 9.
