    On Monday, November 21, McPherson Commissioners had their weekly meeting. The first thing on the agenda for this certain Monday, were a few requests including Departmental Matters brought up by Police Chief, Rob McClarty. While there were reports on various Planning and Zoning activities, the approved wages and the hiring of a new Patrol Officer stuck out.  A lot of changes are taking place in McPherson’s Police Department. Many officers have been promoted, others hired. Ryan Olbricht was announced from Patrol Officer to Patrol Sergeant, Mikel Golden from Detective to Lieutenant, Jordan Baxter from Sergeant to Detective, and the hiring of Krystina Stackhouse as a Patrol Officer.  

    Officer Pam Cherry has been approved to attend a floodplain training event in Lincoln, Nebraska for the duration of December 11 through 16th.

    It’s been a rough time for police officers all over the country, and the same for officers here in the community. A point brought up by Police Chief, Rob McClarty were the recent attacks on police officers in recent drive by shootings. It was made clear that five officers from Texas, Missouri, Florida, Kansas, and Arizona were shot and killed. “Targeted, ambushed, and attacked” officers across the national are emotionally affecting not only large city officers but our own local officers. A moment of silence was held for the recently killed officers.

    These and other attacks have put police officers on edge, although Police Chief Rob McClarty made it clear that the goal of the McPherson Police Department is still to serve and protect McPherson’s residence.

    The new changes to the department are effective on December 5, 2016.
