New Top Cop Named in Tyronza

May 25, 2005--Posted at 10:00 am CDT

 

Tyronza, AR--The city of Tyronza has named a new top cop.  Tony Turner, the town’s only current full time police officer, has been named to the position of chief of police.  Mayor Marion Bearden says she met with the entire police force early Tuesday morning to inform them of her decision.

 

Two weeks ago Chief Curtis Swan was terminated for what the mayor called a, ‘failure to perform his desired duties.’  Swan had worked for the city for several years and had been the town’s top cop for more than two years.

Tony Turner has lived and worked for the city of Tyronza for a number of years.
