YAMHILL -- Greg Graven is Yamhill's new police chief.

He was named interim chief Aug. 1 following the sudden death of Gordon Rise, who had been chief for 26 years.

The council decided tonight to make his hiring permanent.

Graven has been with the Yamhill police department for more than 16 years. He was a corporal before being named chief.

He is working with the department's other officer and volunteer reserves to cover the city in the wake of Rise's death from natural causes. Now that he has been named chief, he said his first order of business is hiring another fulltime officer.
