City looks to reinstate police department
EGYPT, Ark. (KAIT) - A Craighead County town is looking to reinstate its police department.
Minutes from Egypt’s city hall meeting on Oct. 10 state that work is being done to update policies, institute a budget, and provide funding for the department.
The city has been without a department after the former police chief, Gerald Goza, was indicted in Feb. 2020 on allegations he took social security funds he was not entitled to and filed a false statement with the Social Security Administration.
Authorities said Goza took those funds from Aug. 2015 until Jan. 2020.
He was sentenced to five months in prison.
