Prichard's New Police Chief

Prichard's New Police Chief

Posted: Updated:
PRICHARD, ALABAMA -

Jerry Speziale made the rounds in city council chambers introducing himself to citizens before Thursday night's city council meeting began.  The decorated veteran police officer from New York and New Jersey has an impressive resume', but not even that won him quick approval to head Prichard's Police Department.

Citizens took turns voicing their concerns...questioning why Speziale would leave a high profile and high paying job up north to move to Prichard.  Speziale said it's not about the money, "This is an opportunity for me to work with the community and fix this city".
 
Before taking a vote on offering him the job, the council went into executive session at the urging of Councilwoman Ossiah Edwards.
Afterward, with a vote of four to one, the council voted to hire Speziale, a decision met with cheers by the audience.

Speziale accepts  a three year contract and plans on living in the city with his family.
