Nacogdoches City Commissioners Approve New Police Chief

by Stuart Burson

The City of Nacogdoches has a new police chief. All the city commissioners voted to hire Jimmie Sevey.

Sevey comes from Midland, Texas. He's been the commander of the Midland police force for the past couple of years.

Despite the commission's approval Tuesday night, there were some at the meeting supporting current assistant chief Mike Kelly. Some wanted Kelly to get the job.

"I'm here as a concerned resident of Nacogdoches. I've known Mike Kelly a long time, and I think he's an excellent police officer, and I just wanted to show my support," says Jimmy Daniels, a Nacogdoches resident.

Sevey brings with him 24 years of law enforcement experience.
