ARDMORE, Okla. -- Dave Leonardo spent his first day checking on his officers and seeing what changes he will make as the new chief of the Ardmore Police Department on Monday.

Leonardo was appointed last month by the City of Ardmore as their new chief, and on Monday he officially took over the reigns.

Leonardo spent the last seven years in Peoria, Arizona, and made the move to Ardmore after their recent study showed the department having low morale and a lack of leadership in the department.

We will have more from the Chief Leonardo and find out what changes he could be making at the Ardmore Police Department as he continues his first week on the job.

    A tree dies from the top down. How many police chiefs do they need to go through to find out what is wrong with moral. Isn't the person in charge of the chief of police the city manager? Maybe the commissioners need to check him out. Just a thought.

    The problem is the city manager, Dan Parrott, not our dedicated police officers! I ask why there were 3 evaluations done on our police department? The 3rd one said what Mr. Parrott wanted it to say, that's why! Our city needs to do an internal evaluation on HIM. Why does he need two secretaries anyway? He definitely is not THAT busy!!!

    Whats the deal with that hair???? Something doesn't look right about this guy. I bet he saw a ghost or looked directly at a nuclear explosion or something. He reminds me of John Wayne Gacy.

    Funny, this guy just FAILED the same survey in Peoria. How is he going to help morale any better here. If he couldn't do it there? Also, not one of the officers got introduced to him, only the "chosen" Still the same department, nothing changed..
