BRUNSWICK, Md. (WDVM) — Kevin Grunwell received unanimous council approval and has been appointed by Mayor Brown as the new Brunswick police chief.

Mayor brown also said in a statement that the council is very confident in their choice and are honored Grunwell wants to continue the legacy that Milt began.
