Henderson said he wants the community’s input and ideas on how to be a better police department for the people. He said that he plans to have an officer stay active with the department’s facebook page, where people can voice their ideas, and they can call or come by the department to speak with him about their ideas.
After being sworn-in officially Monday morning, Henderson said he “hit the ground running.”
He said he and Captain David Riley have a meeting Tuesday morning with Commonwealth Attorney David Williams and County Attorney Clay Ratley to see how the department can change court procedures in a way to streamline the process for the attorneys, and ensure they are receiving what they need from the department for their cases.
Henderson said he is also working with KSP Trooper Norman Chaffins to plan a community safety day event. The day would host a variety of first responders and possible finger printing for children. He said he wants the community to know the police department is working for them.
Other items up for improvement according to Henderson will be patrolling streets, watching over parks and recreational areas and school traffic situations.
