If you have seen Corinth police cars in Lake Dallas and perhaps spotted Lake Dallas patrol cars in Corinth, there is a good reason for it. The city councils of the two cities have tasked their respective police agencies with merging resources for a 12–18-month trial period.
As Corinth’s police chief, I also will serve as the Lake Dallas interim chief during the study. This is my 51st year in policing, with 17 of those years spent as a police chief. I have had the good fortune of leading just about every function available to a municipal law enforcement officer, from Patrol to Detectives to Training, and I am looking forward to bringing whatever experience I may have to the project.
Officers of both departments are excited about the possibilities posed by working together even more closely than we have in the past. We are determined to make this effort of cooperation and collaboration work well. But do not hesitate to let us know how YOU feel we are doing. If I have not yet met you, hopefully I will soon. Please feel free to reach to either the City Manager Kandace Lesley at firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com.
