MARIETTA, Okla. - After five months of searching, the city of Marietta finally has a new police chief. It took city leaders an hour and a half in executive session to come to their decision.

The City Council approved the hiring of 51-year old Linda Johnson. Johnson recently retired after working 20-years in Ontario, California, as both an officer and a sergeant.

She says she's now ready to take on the challenge as Marietta's new chief.

“I feel back at home. Police work is my first love, and I've been retired for a year. I’m ready to get back in go back to my love," Johnson says.

No word yet on when Johnson will be sworn in as chief.
