Goldsboro's transition to a new police chief should be a seamless one as the city announced Thursday that interim Police Chief Jeff Stewart has been hired to fill the position permanently.

Stewart was named the interim chief in January 2011 and took over the department March 1 following the retirement of Tim Bell.

The announcement comes just 11 days after Stewart's 25th anniversary with the city. He originally joined the Goldsboro Police Department on April 15, 1987.
