CAHOKIA (KMOV.com) -

Cahokia officials are not discussing why the city recently demoted its police chief and named a replacement.

News 4 learned that new Cahokia Mayor Curtis McCall quietly demoted the chief and promoted a police captain who has been on the force for 35 years. McCall has only been in office for two weeks.

McCall has not given a reason for the change, saying Cahokia's city attorney instructed him to not comment on the situation.

Residents said they are concerned that the change was not announced.

“I would love to know what's going on in the community because it's my city too,” one resident said.

News 4 reached out to the city attorney, but did not hear back.
