Sycamore has a history-making new police chief. Lee Ann Clark was named Sycamore's Police Chief Thursday.

She's the first female police chief in that area and she's been a police officer for 7 years.

Clark says she's received lots of support from the community and becoming Chief was always something she wanted to do.

"Coming into to it, I knew I was coming into a male dominated profession. So I knew I was going to have to step it up so to speak being a female. I wanted to be a Chief," said Lee Ann Clark.

Every council member has assured her they got the full support  and she's had mine the whole time," said Mayor Larry Youngblood.

Clark says she plans to work with the Mayor, city council, and citizens to clean up her community.

Mayor Youngblood says the Turner County Sheriff's Office will be on hand to help Clark and her department.
