Interim police chief announces application to stay on permanently

On Monday, Feb. 11 2013, the time came for Interim Police Chief Drew Tracy to decide whether he was going to apply to stay on as the chief of police.

“Yes,” Tracy answered with characteristic directness. “I talked it over with my wife, I called some of my friends over the years and went over the pluses and minuses. In the end, being able to participate in the academic side played a big role, and today I applied for the job.”
