New Tucumcari Police Chief

The City of Tucumcari has offered the job of Chief of Police to a state police captain.

But City Manager John Sutherland says the city might not be able to hire Daniel Lopez until Mid-December.

Lopez says he must retire from the state police, and meet a sit-out requirement of 90 days.

If he doesn't, it would jeopardize his state retirement pay and benefits.

He's worked for the state police for 17 years.

Tucumcari has not had a police chief since Mid-July, when Larry Ham resigned to spend more time with his family.
