The City of Fairfax got a new Chief of Police this month. The Fairfax City Council unanimously voted to promote Patrolman Scott Froehlich to Police Chief to replace outgoing Chief Kevin Hagen, who left the position last month. Froehlich has served as a patrolman with Fairfax since 2002, and is the son of former Winthrop Police Chief Bruce Froelich. He will receive a raise after 6 months as chief, and will go up another pay step after a year. The city will now be seeking an additional part-time police officer as well.
