Randy Scott is sworn in as Columbia Police Chief on January 22, 2013.
Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott has been officially sworn back into office.
Scott retired last month because of changes to the state police retirement system, which would have meant he'd collect less money down the road.
Scott says his decision was not solely based on money, but one he had to make for his career and family.
Chief Scott was rehired by new City Manager Teresa Wilson. We're told only one other person applied for the position.
