Controversy over city's next police chief

March 31, 2004

Newton-- There is some controversy in Newtown on who will be the city's next police chief. Chief Ken Corn resigned last week.

Acting Chief Lamon Logue hopes to get the job. Some people in Newton told us they heard Logue may be fired. They showed up to show support for Logue at city hall tonight as city leaders interviewed candidates

" I have establish myself here for two years now and I have a good relationship with the people. So they basically want to come out and stand beside me in hopes that I would become the next chief here," says Logue.

The mayor says the city never planned to fire anyone and they hope to hire a new chief soon.
