I'm really glad to see someone brought in from the outside to head the Police Dept. I think this is a very positive move and so glad Pickett did this. It appears Johnson has the qualifications and fortunately is available to do so. We need to move forward as a community. And this IS a positive step!

I have known Mr Johnson for a long time and very much respect him. Pickett will not run him like he did Bewley. Johnson, if given the chance, will be the one to bring digitny to GPD, and law in order for everyone. So I will say this , all you cops who have someting to hide, you better run now because the end is near.

I know Mr. Johnson also, and have known him to be an honest, fair and honorable man. I was gladly surprised to hear his name announced on WBKO as our next Police Chief. I wonder if he has any idea what he's stepping into?

He is only "interim" chief up through this Monday morning. There has been a special session of the City Council called for the express purpose to approve or decline his appointment. If they approve, then he switches right then and there to permanent chief of police. And I'm betting the council approves him. So he's only interim for a weekend.

Just a not of interest.. I was at a large store today and ran into a man who was talking about Glasgow. This was in Bowling Green.

He said he knew Johnson from working with him at Western and said he would only be another cover for Pickett. He said Pickett is on a board at Richmond and this guy does something at Richmond. He said they were friends and this is nothing except the good old boy bunch again.

I have no idea about this, don't know him, but sure found the other guy interesting to listen to. He was telling the whole story. He said Pickett will still run the PD from City Hall.
We will have to wait and see on this one.
