Lakeland looks for new police chief

By Jade Bulecza - bio | email

LAKELAND, GA (WALB) –Lakeland is looking for a new police chief after city council members fired the city's top cop.

Chief Robbie Grantham was put on probation in January.

Last week, the council voted to get rid of him. Capt. Kevin Trollenger is currently in charge.

City Attorney George Wynn told us the City Council just didn't think Grantham was doing his job.

Mayor Bill Darsey was out of town Monday and City Council member Betty Gail Mims hung up on us when we inquired about Grantham's termination.
