Elko New Market hires full-time police chief
Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer
Elko New Market City Administrator Tom Terry expects he'll have news about the city's new full-time police chief at the Elko New Market City Council's Thursday, July 26, meeting.
The council recently unanimously authorized Terry to offer the position to Rick Jensen. He's a familiar face, currently serving the city in a part-time capacity.
Originally, Jensen was among four candidates for police chief of the community. The field narrowed when the other three finalists withdrew before the Wednesday, July 18, open meeting with the council.
