Interim Mooresville PD Chief named as investigation continues

Mooresville has named a temporary Police Chief after the current one has been placed on administrative leave after allegations of creating a hostile workplace environment surfaced.

Police Chief Damon Williams along with Captain David Call were both placed on administrative leave with pay earlier this month after an investigation revealed the complaints.

“Based on the recommendation of our outside investigators and information I have reviewed to date, I made the decision to appoint an Acting Police Chief to enact immediate change in our Police Department,” said Interim Town Manager Ryan Rase.

“I am comfortable in the knowledge and ability of Mr. Campurciani to lead this temporary situation.”
