Bauxite police chief to resign Oct. 31

October 16, 2012

Bauxite Police Chief Ron Parsons announced during a Monday City Council meeting that he will resign on Oct. 31.
Parson said the decision is for personal reasons. He also recommended to the council that Lt. Jamie Barlow be considered for the chief's position.
"I feel that since my time here there has been a lot of improvement in the department," Parsons said. "We don't get complaints, we just don't."
Parsons did not list specific reasons for resigning, but Mayor Johnny McMahan mentioned that the chief is also a full-time detective for the Saline County Sheriff's Office.
