"He has an approachable manner and will be highly visible in the community as he interacts with the department and works with citizens," read the release announcing Roman's appointment.

Roman will step into the role left vacant when Michael Deegan retired after five years as chief and 25 years on the South Barrington force overall in December.

After Deegan's retirement, Deputy Chief Ray Cordell became acting chief while the search for a replacement began.

In a statement, Village President Paula McCombie thanked Cordell for filling in.

"Deputy Chief Raymond Cordell has done an excellent job making sure the duties of the position were covered during the interim. All trustees expressed appreciation for his dedicated service to the village."

The village will host Roman's swearing-in ceremony at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26, in the lower level of the village hall. Refreshments will be served.
