    Agreed. Ask the town of Walls, MS, who prior to my employ as Chief of Police, couldn’t beg a chief to come work there. I worked HARD for 3 1/2 years to make a small town, non-existent police department into a fully functional, nearly self sufficient department. A new mayor and board comes in, and I am fired without explanation. They couldn’t even look me in the eye when I was “dismissed”. I was the only DARE instructor in DeSoto county, and the department’s only ALERRT trained officer, concerning active shooter incidents. I didn’t get so much as a “thank you for your service” note, yet I was allowed to work a 20 hour day on Independence Day, even though they knew they were “letting me go”. Nice. I’m not advocating unions, but something has to change. BTW, I didn’t have a single complaint, verbal or written, against me as Chief of Police. Life is tough-I understand that, but enough is enough.
