New Washington Police Chief

There's a new Police Chief in Washington, Beaufort County.

Chief G. Mitchell "Mick" Reed just started this week. Reed's from South Boston, Virginia. He served as Chief there before taking charge at the Washington Police Department.

Reed says he's excited to be in Eastern Carolina and is looking forward to meeting people in the community over the next few weeks. Chief Reed says he's a big proponent of community policing, where businesses, citizens and the police department work together to combat crime.
