(AP) — The new chief of police in Aurora rose from the ranks.

Paul Graham assumed the post after Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.

He takes over for Chief Godfrey Brokenrope, who died July 27. His motorcycle crashed two days earlier on Interstate 80 near Seward.

Graham has been the acting chief since Brokenrope’s death and has been on the Aurora force since November 1993.
