The city of Lancaster has a new police chief. City Council decided on veteran lawman Rodney Kidd to get the department and the city back on track. Kidd is a retired sergeant from the Louisville Metro Police department and was hired Monday and will be sworn in on January 3. Kidd is faced with a department that has less than half a dozen active duty cops, as some have left and others have had discipline issues. Kidd told council he's up for the challenge.
