TRENTON, TX--- The Fannin County town of Trenton has gone more than a year now without a licensed Chief of Police. The city is now facing an investigation by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards.

TCLEOSE Director of Operations John Helenberg says the city is in violation of TCLEOSE's Education Code for going more than one year without a licensed Chief of Police.

I've seen firsthand how municipal leaders place themselves above the law. In 1998 when Debbie Kershaw retired from Jamaica Beach police dept.,
The city administrator John Brick did not appoint an acting chief until her replacement was found.
He was the 'acting chief'. Talk about violations.

Sounds like what was going on in Hitchcock when the mayor hired someone who had been out of law enforcement almost 20 years to be the chief. Although he did eventually re license, he still needs to attend the LEMIT.

Unfortunately, no amount of schooling will ever turn the current chief into a professional.

I meant to say 2008 as the retirement date.
