The council voted unanimously earlier this month to offer the police chief position to Furman, who was a part-time Shelby officer and a full-time officer for the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians Department of Public Safety in Manistee.

Furman replaces Terry TenBrink, who retired as police chief last October after 43 1/2 years on the force.

The new chief will be paid an annual salary of $45,000.

Furman has a criminal justice degree from West Shore Community College.
