Cossie and Chris are good guys. Sorry... Neither will be chief, maybe after a few years. Not what our town needs right now. We need a strong proven leader that will fight our problems with authority. Someone that can pull resources and get it done. We need a strong personality that will go to council meetings and stress the importance of law enforcement in our community, to get the equipment and pay needed to keep and hire good people to work for our police dept. Someone that has the respect of the community. I can only think of two people, Brooks and Holbrook. Either would be great. Both would be even better!

The Coeburn police are the jokes of the county....since I've lived in this state, which ha been over 10 times, I've kept track of the times I've actually seen them do anything, including pulling people over, etc.

....lets just say I'm not into the double digits yet.

you obviously don't have a clue what you are talking about. CPD does more traffic stops than all the other towns in the county PLUS city of norton PLUS the deputies PLUS the state police COMBINED. not saying all were stops that needed to be made or that they all ended in a summons or an arrest; that is another topic altogether. just listen to the scanner an evening or two. cpd needs their own channel and dispatchers. the other towns can barely get through with all the radio traffic originating in the town of friendly people.

So...... I don't think there can be that many people driving so bad or that many violations. For one the county are busy answering calls, they stay slammed answering calls, that's what I here on the scanner, and goofballs from the town are trying so hard to tie up the radio, is what I here. I just wonder how many traffic are for made-up reasons. If they are immature and using the radio too much, emergencies that need to be given out by dispatchers can cause a BIG problem. The Sheriff just needs to make a county police department and resolve these problems, and let these immature officers find another line of work. Or the town can hire a leader that will stop this bull and make them do the things that really need to be done.

I agree that i think Cossie, would make a great police chief. He is a very good officer and i think he is a great person. I have known him for years and i think he is very fair and does his job, like he is suppose to. So he would have my vote anyday :) These officers don't get enough respect, they risk their lives everyday for others, and for the money they are paid it's not worth it, but they still do the job anyway. So if you are currently chief right now Cossie, I am sure you are doing a great job at it. Hope you keep the position...... Your Friend Always :)

May be an ok person, but not as chief... Nobody from the last administsration will be respected, period..... Sorry, you can say what you want, it will not change anything. He was part of all of that crap, no matter how you look at it, him and Chris, turtle whatever you want to call them. We ask for a change and we will get it, I have faith in our new council to choose someone that will get the respect back of the town. He isn't the answer, not enough experience, not enough respect, to be honest with you he shouldn't be considered at all. I have heard too many negative things involving him with the bunch that is gone, so no way, not going to happen. If he gets it, nothing will change!!!!

We need a Chief from outside the Town Of Coeburn that has not been involved with the Police Department. We need a respectful, professional Police Dept that will reflect a positive image on our Town. I like Mr. Brooks but we also need to explore other options. And regardless, please get rid of those cobalts and get real police cars that is not embarrassing!

I agree about the cobalts!! I talked to Brooks, he is going to apply. They can explore other options, but wont find a better person to be chief than Brooks. I know him and talk to him quiet a bit. He is fair, and will do what is right. He will get the trash off the streets. He his very good to talk to, and shares the same concerns we do here in Coeburn. If given the chance, he will make a difference.

I agree slapaho12, Holbrook or Brooks either one would be great. Either of these two would be the absolute best choice for our town. If the council members are serious about police in our town, they should go after either of them, or both would be great.

Skeens should be locked up, not considered to be chief or an officer! That would be stupid.
