Barnwell has a new police chief.
The City Council unanimously approved hiring Brian Johnson as chief of Barnwell Police Department earlier this week.
Johnson, who was a captain in the department, had been serving as interim chief since Ruben Black was terminated by the council in February amid a South Carolina Law Enforcement Division investigation.
Details of the investigation have not been released.
