MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A deputy who has been with the Capitol Police Department for more than 20 years has been named the acting police chief.

A Wisconsin State Journal report says deputy Chief Dan Blackdeer will become acting chief on Friday. He replaces outgoing Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs, who’s leaving to become the county’s new emergency management director.

Blackdeer will serve as acting chief until the Department of Administration hires a new chief.

The Capitol Police Department has 50 officers.
