ADA, Okla. -- A familiar face is taking over as Ada's top law enforcement official,

The city has named former public works director Carl Allen as the new Chief of Police.

Allen has been serving as the city's interim police chief since May, stepping in when Mike Miller retired after 38 years with the department.

"I am very honored to be named Chief of Police," Allen said in a written statement. "We have a great department with remarkable men and women who protect and serve the citizens of Ada every day."

Allen has a long history with the Ada Police Department, where he had previously worked for 26 years before retiring in 2011.
