I finally had the opportunity to officially meet the new Tarboro Police Chief Damon Williams. Councilman Taro Knight introduced him to me.
Chief Williams seemed to be a very nice person from my first impression of him. The Chief said he wanted to change the way the police department operated and to let the community know that it was not us against them but it is a we thing. He said he wanted to do some things to bring the community together.
The National Night Out was suppose to be held on the Town Common but was moved to the MA Ray Center due to the rain. It was a small crowd but everyone seemed to be excited and really enjoyed the drug search demonstration that was held by Sgt. Jesse Webb and K-9 Bullet.
I also got the chance to officially meet Miranda Baines who recently joined the Daily Southerner as a reporter.
