Gary Price completed day two on the job as the new interim police chief in Sylvester.

Price resigned from his job with Meigs Police Department on Monday and started his new position in Sylvester on Tuesday.

For the past two years  Price served the city of Meigs as it's police chief, but now he has a new roll as Interim Chief of Police in Sylvester.

"This is a plan, I've always wanted to be in charge of a larger department," said Price.

With a bigger city, comes more responsibilities but Price said he's ready.

" My goal is just to rechange the public perception of the Sylvester Police Department," said Price.

To trust the department to protect the community and the people living there.

" I want people to see that the citizens of Sylvester are willing to work with the police department to better their environment to better their safety," said Price.

Which he said he has experience with coming from Meigs.

"Hopefully the skills I've learned with my former agency, the Meigs police department, I can bring here and make this place better. Just like I did with the city of Meigs," said Price.

With any change comes of course a transitional period but Price said he's prepared. " I'm excited, I welcome the challenge that comes with this task,"
