City Of Troup Has New Police Chief

The city of Troup has a new police chief. Smith County Sheriff's Sergeant Patrick Hendrix was selected as the new chief at last night's city council meeting. The search for a new chief began earlier in the month after Troup's former police chief Chester Kennedy was arrested and charged with tampering of evidence. He was later fired by the city. Hendrix begins his duty as chief May 1st.
