dave blue  Arizona State Trooper Dave Blue has been named the interim Chief of Police in Kearny, Arizona pending the hiring of a new permanent chief.

Blue, a sergeant with the Arizona State Troopers, has held a variety of supervisory assignments with his most recent assignment supervising a squad of Arizona State Troopers based in Casa Grande.

“Without the support of Arizona State Trooper Dave Blue, our agency would not be able to step in and assist the town of Kearny as it works to hire a permanent chief. Kearny looked to us as a neutral third-party that could provide leadership and world class police service to their community,” said Col. Frank Milstead, Director of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
