Does anyone know how Chief Cleek is doing?
Heard that they were going to make Farley Chief, atleast till Cleek gets back. That's a mistake if I ever seen one. He doesn't have the mental capacity for the job.

If the morons that run Troy put Larry in charge, it would be the best thing they would ever do. He is a lot smarter than you think. Is he a "good ole boy"? Yeah, but he is slicker than you think he is. If anyone wants to know what's going on in Troy, they ask Farley. Just watch.

Chief Cleek is not doing much better. Everyone needs to keep him in their prayers. He was improving very slowly, but he suffered a set back in the last few days. He is still in very serious condition and basically stuggling to survive.

Farley as temporary Police Chief would be a "plus" for the city of Troy.

He does seem to know everything happening in Troy and takes time to know everyone in Troy.

He knows what is "normal" in Troy and what is out of character.

Good Luck to Farley and Many Prayer to Mr. Cleek.

People need to let Troy City Council know that they support Farley as temporary Police Chief.
Rumor is....that the City Council is looking to fill the position with an "outsider".
Whatever happened to promoting "in house".
That is sad that the Troy City Council cannot reward a hardworking employee with a temporary promotion.
The "City Fathers" need to realize that education is not always better than experience.
Come on people, let your wishes be known. The City Council of Troy is supposed to make decisions based on what the majority of the citizens of Troy want or need.
Call the City Council Members and let them know that you support Larry Farley.
We don't need a stranger coming into our town who does not know the community or the people. A person who will enforce his own personal agenda instead of the "laws of the Troy community".

yeah they should let him come back to work. i heard they let him go because he went out of the city limits to help assist on another call.and was also helping trying to find a car that was reported in the ditch wrecked on another day on phebus road. heck the troy city limits end at phebus road.what did it hurt to go down that road to help see if someone needed help or was hurt.

Was he the young officer that was let go recently? I heard he was "hooking up" with women outside of city limits while on the job.

I sincerely doubt that a few weeks at police academy studying bookds adds up to all the real life experience that Officer Farley has gotten working for the City of Troy.

Anyone who thinks Larry Farley has enough common sense to be Police Chief, needs to sit down and talk to him for five minutes and you will change your mind. He has no more idea how to run a Police Department than a first grader does. He "thinks" and is telling everyone that he is "acting Chief", but according to the Mayor, and Board of Aldermen, he is NOT, and NEVER will be! I hope they make him pay for the new Chief's Badge he ordered for himself.
Chief Cleek is doing much better and I hope will be back soon, IF for no other reason than to put Farley on the road. He is acting irresponsibly as usual, and I personally hope that Chief Cleek fires him for it! Try working with him and you will KNOW what I am talking about.

I don't believe one post on here has said that Farley was going to replace Mr. Cleek or that Mr. Cleek would never return to his position as Troy Police Chief. No one is wishing Mr. Cleek ill feelings.

I also do not believe that Farley would ever go around claiming to be temporary police chief or Mr. Cleek's replacement.

So what if he is asking women out. How many of the "great leaders" of Obion County have not only asked women out, but also have asked women out and dated them while they were married (Adultry).

I also think that it is sad that the mayor is going around making comments about one of his police officers not being worthy of a temporary promotion. What does that say about a Major that is undermining another town employee's reputation or work qualifications.

The town mayor should not be making any comment about another town employee's capabilities. Shame on the mayor for gossiping with his "Buddies" in the town and for them posting the mayor's malicious comments on the internet/Topix.

cry me a river it dont take even a dumb person to know that farley couldnt do the job and has for the mayor you need to re-read what it says it dont say the mayor is saying it...it says the mayor would clear up all the rumors...so get the facts straight! and Farley sure he can ask people out but he is to the point where he is harrasing people and wont stop with some of them its more like a stalker!

and it was meant to say I dont think he is chief material and a whole lot more people agree....the mayor part is meaning he would gladly clear up any rumors that people ask him about i'm sure!

First: Farley has NEVER written me a ticket, and I am not worried that he ever will. I was very surprised when they hired him, and even more surprised that they have kept him this long.

Second: I have known Larry for over 40 years, and I bet his Father is rolling over in his grave at the way he is acting. He was not raised to act that way, but as soon as he put that badge on, he turned into "Instant Asshole".

Third: The way he hugs and gropes little(young) girls is enough to get anyone else arrested. I have a 13 year old granddaughter, and IF I ever see him hugging and groping her like he does the little(young) girls after school, he will answer to ME!

Lastly: I agree with what was said earlier. IF you want to know what the Mayor and Aldermen think about him, ASK THEM. I have, and what they told me will stay with me. It is their job to answer the questions of citizens, and listen to the concerns of the residents of Troy. They have a meeting every month and I will be at every one of them till all this is over. All I will say is, "Anyone that votes FOR Farley, will NOT get my for re-election"!
