APD confirms deputy chiefs out amid reorganization

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The positions for Albany Police Department's two deputy chiefs are being eliminated as it undergoes a reorganization.

In a release late Friday afternoon, Albany Police Chief Michael Persley said he would eliminate the positions of Deputy Chief, create an Assistant Chief’s position.

Albany's Deputy Chiefs are Nathaniel Clark and Mark Scott.

It was not immediately known whether Clark or Scott had resigned or were terminated.

Majors will now oversee the three bureaus: Support Services, Criminal Investigation, and Uniform.

Acting Commanders will oversee the bureaus until the hiring process for the Assistant Chief and Major positions have been completed.

In addition, Captain Reginald Brown will serve as Acting Commander over the Uniform Bureau.

Captain Ryan Ward will serve as Acting Commander over the Criminal Investigations Bureau.

Major Russell Barnes will serve as Acting Commander over the Support Services Bureau.

Persley said the reorganization was part of the city's efforts to be fiscally responsible.

"One of my goals as Albany Chief of Police is to insure that the Albany Police Department operates effectively and efficiently so that the citizens of our community are well served," he said in a statement. "Additionally, we must also be good stewards of tax payer’s money."
