I have not heard anything lately about the hiring of a new police chief. Does anyone know where we are in the process?

The town did phone interviews with a group and then after culling the field held an assessment at the end of July. Not sure what is going on now.

We won't know until the final decision has been made. I would love it if the community could have some input on who we get, but the Chief is not an elected official.

No, the Towan Manager is the Cheif's boss and nothing will be put out until he makes a decision. Many jurisdictions are now doing citizen forums with the top two or three candidates but that it too progressive for Boone.

I wish they would give us a little info on what is going on. It seems to have stalled. It can't be that hard. Why don't they ask the citizens if it has been narrowed down to just a few?

it is down to 2 or 3 one being Dana Crawford a Beech Mtn Police officer that is strictly an admin guy who couldnt investigate his way out of a wet paper bag. the dept wants him because they can dictate to him rather than someone new that actually knows what is going on and will straighten out some of the crap at boone pd (Tart, Lt lying about the gun incident the bogus firing of byrd.) so good luck to the town of boone if they go with crawford last i heard he was trying to be the clerk of court in avery county that is scary.

Beech Mountain ha ha ha ha, Management up there put a sex predator in the highschool and a thief in the finance department. GREAT JOB...

they seem dumb enough to hire a fox to watch the hen house.

Crawford is a D U M B A Z Z in any job and I can assure you if he is the man in either of those jobs there will be a many who disagree. Watch out Mr. Young this could be the third rail of your tenure if you touch it.

Dana Crawford?!? why not just hire Mark Shook. Too bad they can't find another Bill Post. They at the very least need a professional who will demand respect. Crawford ?!?!?! thats a good one. I seriously doubt it. Does he even have a degree in anything?

I have known Mr.Crawford for many years.He is a dedicated family man,who has spent most of his life not only caring about his family but his community.Dana worked hard,putting himself through school and obtaining his 4 yr Criminal justice degree.He has worked hard for everything he has achieved.He dedicates his time to bettering his community.It just doesn't make sense to me why people turn to these forums to slander others. For those of you who feel you could do a better job,why didn't you apply?

Because we know we're not qualified. We also know when someone else isn't qualified too.

4 yr Criminal justice degree? from where? you better check that out, maybe see who the resorse officer was at his school?

and believe what you want I can tell you he IS unprofessional and if he is the new chief it wont last very long. They need someone with real experience and a graduate degree, not a dumb azz from beach mountain. DANA S U X

"K again,the slander on this site is uncalled for. Dana received his degree from Lee's Mcrae college.And as for the resource officer,that would be the Avery County Sheriff's office and not Beech Mountain PD.(also check into spell check)

I have known Dana for years. He taught some of my BLET classes, and other classes I have atteneded. I have nothing but respect for him and the department he works for. I know that Dana would be an asset to the Boone Police Department if chosen for the position. I would work for him. Regardless of what happens, I wish him the best.
