Newbern Board Can’t Settle on New Police Chief
NEWBERN, Tenn.- The Newbern Police Department still does not have a police chief. Last night, the board of aldermen were supposed to vote on two candidates. Interim Chief Jimmy Richards and a candidate recommended by the mayor. However, neither were approved. Now the interim police chief will remain in office until a final decision is made. The city said it is now searching for more applicants.
