The city of Stewartsville in DeKalb County will be looking for a new police chief.

Stewartsville City Hall confirmed in a Facebook post Tuesday that Police Chief Andrew Porter has resigned to take "a better job opportunity for his family."

Porter had been Stewartsville's police chief for two years, but had served on the force for a number of years prior to that.

Stewartsville city clerk Megan Foreman says the DeKalb County Sheriff's office will provide law enforcement assistance to Stewartsville in the mean time.

The Stewartsville City Council will discuss the next steps forward for the police department at their next meeting on March 9.

Any Stewartsville resident who needs law enforcement assistance is asked to call the DeKalb County Sheriff's office or 911 if it is an emergency.
