WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Wichita city officials have chosen Duluth, Minnesota’s police chief to lead the largest police force in Kansas.

The city announced Friday that 43-year-old Gordon Ramsay will become Wichita’s new police chief on Jan. 28. He will be paid $170,000 a year.

Ramsay said in a statement that he was humbled and “beyond excited” to be chosen for the job.

Ramsay has been Duluth’s police chief since 2006 and a police officer for 22 years. The Duluth department has a $25 million budget and more than 200 employees.

In Wichita, he will lead a department with a nearly $82 million budget and 836 employees.

Wichita’s last police chief, Norman Williams, retired in 2014. Since then, Deputy Chief Nelson Mosley has led the department as interim chief.
