WILMINGTON — The Wilmington Police Department will have a new deputy chief as its assistant chief sets to retire this summer.

Assistant Chief David Oyler will step down in August. He has been with the department since 1993 and took over the reins as AC in 2018. Oyler worked in multiple departments, including the criminal investigation division, patrol, ATF task force, vice and narcotics unit and special operations. He also assisted with the SABLE program.

Former Captain Kelvin Hargrove has also taken over in the deputy chief position. Hargove has worked at the department for three decades in patrol, SWAT, vice and narcotics, and criminal investigations divisions. He also has mentored area youth through basketball and served as WPD’s police athletic league coordinator.

His new role will include “supervising professional standards, planning, and public information,” according to a press release from the department, with a focus on community engagement.
