Problems In Electra Police Department

A number of Electra Police Dispatchers gave their resignation Wednesday.

The City Manager of Electra. Larry Pannel told us it will be effective at the end of their shifts.  Pannel said once they leave there will be no more dispatchers at the station.

To solve the problem, the Wichita Falls Sheriff's Office is sending dispatchers immediately.  Larry said they will not contract with the Sheriff's Office for the dispatchers because he feels it will only be for a short period of time.

Electra is already going through many applications.

We have been covering the problems in Electra for months.  Here is a list of our extensive coverage:
