Chief of police sworn in for Cordele police

Cordele Police Chief

CORDELE, GA (WALB) - Chief Lewis Green has been sworn in as the official chief of the Cordele Police Department.

WALB spoke with officers who say Chief Green was already formally sworn in as chief, but the official ceremony was earlier this week.

Former Chief Rob Rodriguez submitted his resignation back in November. Rodriguez finished his job with the Cordele Police Department in December.

“Having a chief filled in this quickly is nice because you feel like you have someone who can make the decisions and you can understand where the objective of the department is,” said Lt. Andrew Roufs, Cordele Police Dept.

The Cordele Police website shows that Green has been with the department for more than 30 years.
