Lewiston names interim police chief

Lewiston Police Department veteran Budd Hurd will take over as Interim Police Chief.

Former police chief Chris Ankeny resigned earlier in January stating “differences in opinion” with city manager Alan Nygaard led to his departure after three years as police chief.

Hurd began his career in law enforcement in 1990 with the Lewiston Police Department. He served as a School Resource Officer at Lewiston High School for five years, and spent another five years assigned to the Investigations Section.

“The world has changed a great deal in 28 years and the Lewiston Police Department has
progressed with it,” said Hurd. “I have cherished my career as I have worked in or
around each section within the department to bring about these changes.”

Hurd takes command of the department February 1st.
