After interviewing five finalists in May, the Town of Carrboro on Thursday announced that police Captain Walter Horton will succeed retiring police Chief Carolyn Hutchison, who took office in 1998.
Horton, who was born and raised in Carrboro and attended Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, has been a member of the police force since 1993. He was selected from more than 100 applicants, officials said.
Horton graduated from Mount Olive College with a degree in criminal justice, and he is also a graduate of the North Carolina Justice Academy's management development program.
