Texas city starts search for new police chief


By Beth Kuhles
The Houston Chronicle

The Conroe City Council will appoint a nine-member committee to recommend police chief candidates. Police Chief Charlie Ray retired on May 31 after a 30-year career in law enforcement. The City Council opted to do its own search, rather than hire an outside firm, and will appoint a nine-member committee to review applicants.

That committee will include Mayor Webb Melder, Mayor Pro Tem Jerry Streater, a third council member, Fire Chief Ken Kreger, City Administrator Jerry McGuire, two police department staff, including a patrol officer and two citizens, including a representative from the Dugan or Madeley areas of the city.
