Bill Isbell got grant money for School resource officers, meth checking equipment, Abby the dog to look for missing people in the forest and many other worthwhile things. His citizens police academy and reserve officers were both great community outreach and probably ahead of his time. More Police departments should offer these programs, the knowledge only helps citizens understand a support the police better.

Roger Powers owes him an apology and a lot of people owe him a thank you. Since the town owed him back pay when he left, makes me wonder if this investigation is just a smokescreen to get out of paying him what they owe him.
Bill deserves so much better than that! Thank God an innocent man was cleared and justice was served!

I am convinced it was a witch hunt because Bill Isbill was getting too well liked, and powerful for Roger Powers. His little man ego could not stand it.
All of the work done on the police dept. was done with out asking for one red cent from the city. all donated. I know this, because I helped.
We lost a great leader due to this towns ingorance.
