Chadbourn Town Manager Trey Burke confirmed Wednesday that Harry White has been appointed as the town’s new police chief. White, a native of Plymouth, has been employed by the Winston Salem Police Department since 2005.

White will celebrate his 35th birthday next week. He is expected to begin work on Aug. 14 and will earn $52,000 a year, $2,000 more than the town manager. He currently is a trainer with the Winston Salem police department.

The new police chief has a master’s degree in public administration from Appalachian State University and a B.S. in criminal justice from N.C. Central University.

Before becoming in-service coordinator in the Winston Salem department’s training division last year, he was a corporal in the department’s traffic enforcement unit beginning in 2010.  From 2009-2010 he was a patrol officer in the patrol division.  He was a recruiter and background investigator in the department’s recruiting unit from 2007-2009.
