A long time career in law enforcement has come to an end for a police chief in Mahoning County.

Jackson Township trustees gave a send-off celebration to Ken Frost, who has been their chief for the past five years. Frost spent most of his 35-year career in Beaver Township.

He looked back at how law enforcement has changed since he first started.

“We had a police car with a red light on top and a radio in it,” said Frost. “There was no such thing as a laptop, stun guns, tasers or anything like that. We didn’t even carry portable radios back then. They just weren’t available to us when I started.”

Jackson Township trustees will swear in their new chief, Greg Taillon, who was most recently with the Mahoning County Sheriff’s department, Wednesday at 5 p.m.
