HACKLEBURG — Hackleburg Police Chief Jeremy Booth has announced that he will be resigning after his short stint as chief of the police department.
In his place, Mayor Darryl Colburn appointed Bear Creek Police Chief Kenny Hallmark, who will begin his work as chief after serving out his two week notice in his current position.
“We hate to lose Chief Booth,” Colburn said. “He’s done a great job during his time here.
“Although (Booth) was only here for a relatively short time, he made a lasting impression on myself, the council and most importantly, the citizens of Hackleburg.”
