Mansfield has a new police chief to replace Dino Sgambellone. Mayor Tim Theaker administered the oath of office Wednesday as Captain Kenneth Coontz was sworn in before a packed city council chambers. Coontz was hired twenty years ago and rose quickly through the ranks of Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Captain. Now he looks forward to having the authority to improve the police department. The mayor says Coontz is well prepared to direct and manage the department. Coontz is 42-years-old with no plans to retire, and says he will remain chief for years to come. He will start taking applications soon for a new deputy chief to replace Tobie Smith, who retires in March. She turned-down the opportunity to become Mansfield's first female police chief, because she's ready to hang-up her badge and pursue other interests.
