SIMPSONVILLE, SC (WSPA) – Mike Hanshaw as the new interim Chief of Police for the city of Simpsonville.

Hanshaw is a captain with the department and has been directing the department since Deputy Chief Steve Moore retired at the end of February.

“Captain Hanshaw has 20 years of experience in law enforcement and has worked through the ranks of the Simpsonville Police Department. That kind of experience is a valuable asset to Simpsonville,” said City Administrator Eddie Case, “Over the last few weeks, I have been impressed with his leadership of the department. It gives me great confidence that he will continue lead the Simpsonville Police Department.”

City council is putting their search for a Chief of Police on hold, according to a news release.
