“We’ve already started” the process, Ducey said.

Under Brick’s form of government, the mayor is empowered to select a new police chief with the advice and consent of the township council. The council will meet once more in October, once in November and then on Dec. 1 where the governing body could confirm a new chief.

Deputy Chief Jim Riccio is currently the second-in-command of the department.
