Update: Search For New Olney Police Chief

The city of Olney took a step toward hiring a new police chief Monday night.

Olney City Manager Danny Parker said Monday night that  they will start advertising for that opening, and will meet in the future to review applications.

Parker said they are also considering appointing an Interim Police Chief.

Former Chief Steven Wheeler turned in his letter of resignation to the city manager's office last week to advance his career in Slaton, Texas as a Lieutenant.
