EMERALD ISLE, N.C. — Former Kernersville Police Chief Ken Gamble is reportedly a finalist for the job of police chief in the town of Emerald Isle.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported that Gamble is one of five finalists for the job in Emerald Isle, which is in Carteret County.
Gamble resigned in March after 3½ years as chief, citing management and leadership styles that were incompatible with the vision of other Kernersville officials.
Gamble was placed on two weeks of paid administrative leave on March 4. Town officials have been tight-lipped about why he was placed on administrative leave, saying it was a personnel issue.
