|One of five New/Used Police Cruisers |
Acquired by Interim Chief Ray Price
There has been some extensive lobbying by council members for the installation of Vincent Bell as the new chief. There has also been significant push back against former Chief Vincent Bell. Bell served as the Chief in Helena-West Helena under the following mayors: Riley Porter, Johnny Weaver and James F. Valley. Bell also served as police chief under Marianna Mayor Robert Taylor until he retired at the end of 2010. For a short stint, Bell served as the police chief under Marianna's current Mayor Williams. The push back is reported to have come from the "business community" in Helena-West Helena with a local banker/landlord and hardware store owner/landlord leading that charge.
