Police Chief Applications
THE CITY OF RIDGELAND was taking applications from within the police department last week in an effort to replace Police Chief Jimmy Houston, who is retiring next month.
“There are several individuals in the department who are well trained and could probably step up to the plate. He’s done a good job of preparing some to take his place,” said Mayor Gene McGee.
“We’ll interview those first, and if necessary we’ll go outside the department. We feel we can have the position filled by the time he gets ready to leave.”
