Chattanooga Police Chief David Roddy named Zac McCullough as the new Assistant Chief of Investigations Friday afternoon, filling the vacancy left by Assistant Chief Edwin McPherson's retirement in May, 2018.
McCullough is a native of Chattanooga who has been with the department for 23 years. He has extensive experience in investigations, special operations, neighborhood policing and internal affairs.
As a captain, he oversaw the organized crime, violent crime and property crime divisions as well as the special victims unit. He was also on the SWAT team for more than 10 years.
"I've known Chief McCullough as long as I've been a Chattanooga Police officer," Roddy stated in a news release.
"He has built and led great teams in every role with the department. This demonstration of teamwork and the recommendation by Retired Chief Edwin McPherson, made him the obvious choice to continue leading the outstanding bureau of investigators we have in our agency."
