City Clerk Rosemarie Call, left, swears in police Chief Dan Slaughter during Thursday's City Council meeting. Slaughter, 44, who oversaw the department's patrol operations before his promotion, will lead the county's third-largest law enforcement agency, with 235 officers, 137 civilians and a $36 million annual budget. Hired in October 1992, he replaces Tony Holloway, who becomes St. Petersburg's police chief on Aug. 13. Slaughter has held various department positions and has investigated sex crimes, police-related shootings and homicides. From 2004 to 2008 he worked in the department's internal affairs section.
