I don't understand why a person was picked to lead our police department that has 1. Never been to college or any special training in Police Administration and 2. Never supervised anyone. Training a new trooper is the closest he has been to a supervisor. No budget experience. No personnel expierence. I just don't understand it. I am sure he is a fine person and probably get by, but don't we deserve more than just getting by. I know for a fact that several of the applicants had much better qualifications for the job. I guess it's who you know. Like always.
