Longtime Longview Police Officer Retires

One of the most well liked and colorful characters with the Longview Police Department was honored today in retirement ceremonies. Deputy Chief Robert Eberz was retired today after a combined 41-years in law enforcement.

Eberz has been with Longview for 17 years, and before that was police chief at Pampa, Texas. He was instrumental in numerous training programs with the department. He is being remembered as the officer having the best sense of humor among fellow officers.
