MY TURN: Jackson Police Chief

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

I've lost count of how many police chiefs Jackson has had in recent history. 

There is no question that the Chief of Police is a critically important position in fighting crime in Jackson, but we have to be realistic.  Crimes will not stop with the appointment of a new police chief. 

Selecting a new police chief will be one of the more important decisions Mayor Yarber will make, but it's going to take a comprehensive plan and a lot of community support to put a dent in crime. 

The best advice for Mayor Yarber is to keep politics out of the decision, appoint the best person for the job and give them all the resources to make them successful.
