Chief on medical leave

Rochelle —  According to information released Tuesday by Mayor James Rhodes, Rochelle Police Chief Keith McDuffie currently is on medical leave.

Rhodes said he was contacted last week by a physician who said McDuffie was under his care and needed to be granted medical leave immediately.

The department’s senior officer, Cody Beecher has been appointed as acting police chief in McDuffie’s absence. “We have all the shifts covered with the assistance of certified officers from other departments who are filling in on their off days,” Rhodes explained.
