It's far past time for Mr. Harris to stop with the facade of being the Manager of Public safety while acting as Chief of Police. One or the other, Mr. Harris, but not both. The city needs to appoint a CHIEF of Police and end this whole political facade that was perpetrated by Phil Gordon, Frank Fairbanks, and the sitting city council at the time. The employees of the police department have a right to know who their chief executive is.


Dude, you do realize you just got a police chief of a major city REMOVED! Where's the celebratory lunch going to be held in your honor? Dos Molinos? I'll buy the first pitcher of margaritas. I know the cops don't go there because the owner doesn't give them free meals so at least it will be safe.
