Colonial Beach Town Council formally introduced Elizabeth “Libby” Legg as the town’s new permanent Chief of Police.
Legg is a former police chief at Ferrum College in Franklin County, with over 20 years previous experience in law enforcement at the Roanoke Police Department. Legg was Roanoke’s first female lieutenant.
Legg served as Ferrum College Chief of Police from September 2009, until March of 2014.
Legg beat out over 30 applicants for the position of Colonial Beach Chief of Police, including Interim Chief of Police William Seay.
Seay was named Interim Chief back in January of 2013, when Chief Kenneth Blevins, Sr. resigned following a closed meeting with the town council.
Legg will again make history by being the first female Chief of Police in Colonial Beach.
