City of Mt. Vernon Swears in New Police, Fire Chiefs

MT. VERNON — The city of Mt. Vernon swore in its new department chiefs Tuesday morning at city hall. Trent Page and Kevin Sargent were sworn in as Police Chief and Fire Chief, respectively.

Page says knowing the others who applied for the position, he’s humbled to be tapped as the next Chief of Police.

Sargent says he’s very thankful with the support he’s received as he steps into his new role as Fire Chief.

Page takes over for Chris Deichmann while Sargent replaces Jim Brown. Both former chiefs retired in July.
