Citizen supports new police chief

Editor:

In regards to the article about Newcomerstown Council trying to oust our new police chief ... Maybe it's time the councilperson be replaced. The village needs a chief that is in control rather than a puppet that can be controlled by one councilperson. The people of Newcomerstown better wake up and support this chief. When your co-workers support you, it is a great honor.

Let's (the citizens of Newcomerstown) get behind this chief and give him a chance. I've heard nothing but good things about him. We need a chief that takes control and knows what his officers are doing. At least I don't see any more police sitting, and eating donuts and coffee all the time. You keep on doing a good job Chief Holland and don't let one councilperson run you.

If we can't keep a good chief because of a councilperson, maybe we should go the route of sheriff department. They, surely, can't run the whole sheriff's department.
