Three apply for police chief position in Sunbury

SUNBURY – Three Sunbury police officers have applied for the position of chief in the city.  Sunbury mayor David Persing says Stephen Bennick, Travis Bremigen and Brad Hare are all seeking the job.

Persing says he would like to hire from within the department, but has not counted out choosing someone from outside of the department.  The three will be interviewed next week and Persing says he hopes to announce the new police chief July 4.

Currently Hare is the interim chief, following the demotion of Stephen Mazzeo, due to what Persing called “serious personnel issues.”  Mazzeo remains an active duty officer in Sunbury. (Sara Bartlett)
