New Gibsonville police chief to start on Tuesday

GIBSONVILLE, N.C. — The new police chief in Gibsonville will start on Tuesday.

Gibsonville officials said Ron Parrish was selected as police chief earlier this month. He will replace Mike Woznick, who died of a heart attack in May.

Officials said the 61-year-old Gibsonville resident was one of 37 people who applied for the position.

Parrish is currently a sales consultant and trainer with a firearms company in the Triad, said Ben Baxley, Gibsonville’s town manager.

Baxley said Parrish has 31 years in law enforcement, although this will be his first time as a police chief.

Parrish’s annual salary will be $60,000.
