Montezuma Police Chief Eric Finch will be talking about gun violence Tuesday with Vice President Joe Biden.

Finch has been invited to the White House along with other police chiefs to give input on the Omnibus Gun Violence Prevention Bill, according to a news release from the Montezuma Police Department.

“This is very humbling and a blessing to be asked to attend,” Finch said in the release.

Finch has been Montezuma’s chief for 13 years and serves as an adjunct criminal justice instructor at South Georgia Technical College in Americus.

“We are proud that our chief has been selected for this honor,” Montezuma Mayor Willie James Larry said in the release. “He will represent us very well in this important issue.”

Finch will also meet with members of Congress who are considering changes to gun laws.
