Achille’s interim police chief let go

October 3, 2013

The town of Achille is now without a police chief after the interim chief was let go.

During a meeting last month, the Achille Board of Trustees, demoted Police Chief Chasity Barkley and then named her interim chief.

Mayor Randy Howard said during the meeting that Barkley must show proof of state CLEET training to remain a police officer.

Barkley was let go this week due to her not having the CLEET training. The council is expected to discuss the police department again at its next regular meeting.
