Today is July 1st.  You might remember that exactly six months ago, on January 1st, Mayor Terrell officially took office.  One of first duties was to appoint Jim Richardson as Chief of the Mitchell Police Department.

You might also remember that, in order to be in that position, it was required that Chief Richardson attend some training since he had been out of law enforcement so long.

Mayor Terrell suspended Chief Richardson without pay today for not completing the required training in the alloted time. It has been alleged that Chief Richardson also attempted to get two other officers (not sure who) to sign off stating that he had completed the training when, in fact, he hadn’t.

Steve Blair is acting Chief of the Mitchell Police Department.
