New police chief named in Hazard

The city commission picked Minor Allen to be the next chief during a meeting at City Hall.

Allen began his career with the Hazard Police Department in 1985.

“I want to involve the community more in how we are going to police our town but priority one I want to concentrate on our drug situation that we have. Other things that are going on around the city that are a daily nuisance such as the prostitution. But drugs are the priority,” Minor Allen said.

Allen will replace Ronnie Bryant, who served as chief for about ten years and announced his retirement last month.
