Tyler Police Lieutenant Returns To Force As Sergeant

A former Tyler Police Lieutenant is returning to the force with a demotion in rank. Richard Drew is now Sergeant, Richard Drew. In October, he was suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the department's code of ethics. Now, an agreement between the city, the department and Drew creates a 90 day suspension, without pay--which, under the agreement, Drew has already served. Sergeant Drew will be assigned to Tyler Pounds Field Airport to oversee security. The Police Department has said Drew's infraction last year did not involve criminal actions.
