A longtime police commander in South King County has been selected as the new police chief for the city of Mountlake Terrace.

Greg Wilson, most recently a patrol commander at Federal Way police, will take over the position on Aug. 11. His annual salary will range between $91,380 to $114,216 and he will oversee 31 sworn officers, according to Mountlake Terrace.

Wilson has 21 years of law-enforcement experience with the cities of Renton and Federal Way. He retired from Federal Way police last August, according to Federal Way police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock.

Wilson, 46, earned his bachelor's degree in social sciences from Washington State University, Schrock said. His brother, Brian Wilson, is chief of the Federal Way Police Department.

Wilson will succeed Scott Smith, who left the department in December to become chief of the Tulalip Tribal Police Department.
