New Police Chief in Stratford

Stratford has a new Police Chief.

Dennis Winston has taken over the city's police department.

He comes to the panhandle from the Fort Worth area.

He worked there for15 years in a number of different capacities, including narcotics in Tarrant County, the third largest county by population in Texas.

The chief says he's from a smaller town, so he's excited to come back to one.

He says he will work to keep the small town values intact that make Stratford a great place to live.
