Chaffee police chief James Chambers passed away Sunday morning. He had been suffering from ill health for the last few years. Former Scott County Sheriff Bill Ferrell said Chambers was a member of the Scott County Sheriff’s Department for 23 years before being hired to be Chaffee’s chief of police in September of 2008, filling a vacancy created when Jesse Chisum resigned the position. A post on the Chaffee Police Department’s Facebook page said Chambers will be remembered for his laughter, kindness and leadership. Funeral arrangements had not been announced as of last night.
