PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Current Moss Point Police Chief Calvin Hutchins is moving to a different chief position. He will soon be the Chief of Law Enforcement for the Pascagoula-Gautier School District, according to Superintendent Wayne Rodolfich.

Hutchins was appointed during Tuesday's board of trustees meeting. He will be taking over for Chief Michael Whitmore, who retired. 

“We are excited to have Chief Hutchins on the PGSD team,” said Rodolfich. “I look forward to working with him to continue to provide a safe environment for our students and staff. We need people who are invested in the future of Jackson County. Chief Hutchins has made that investment over his entire career.”

In his current role as Police Chief, Hutchins supervises 44 employees. He has a total of 24 years of experience in the field of law enforcement, all of which has been in the cities of Moss Point and Pascagoula. He has served as a part-time campus policeman in Moss Point and was elected as a Constable for Jackson County.

 Hutchins is a member of the Mississippi Police Chiefs Association, has extensive experience in training police officers for local departments and extensive institutional knowledge of Jackson County, Moss Point, and Pascagoula, as the Chief of Law Enforcement. While serving with the Pascagoula Police Department he served as a shift lieutenant, sergeant, and investigator in the criminal investigations division, commander of special operations, a warrant officer, and traffic officer. He was also named Officer of the Year in 2005.

Last month, Chief Hutchins announced he would be leaving the police department after less than a year in that position. Friday is his last day as Moss Point's top cop.
