“Chief Barlow has been here for about 15 years so I was lucky enough to learn form him and take advantage of his guidance,” Bennington said in an interview with News Center 7.

He is most excited to lead a great group of men and women at the Fairborn Police Department, he said.

“It’s a very young department and a very good department.”

Bennington’s plans include following in Chief Barlow’s foot steps and continuing his programs. Along the way if the department sees any adjustments or additions need to be made, then they will come to a consensus, he said.
