NEW HAVEN — A former big city police chief who led departments in Green Bay, Wis., and Pomona, Calif., will take the helm of the city’s 400-member police force, bringing experience in dealing with the kinds of problems faced here.

James Lewis, most recently chief in the small town of Grand Chute, Wis., a town of about 20,000 people, will be appointed chief, New Haven Chief Administrative Officer Rob Smuts said Sunday.
