Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
DENISON, TX -- The Police Department could soon have two assistant chiefs.
It's part of a restructuring move for the department up for approval at Monday night's city council meeting.
According to the proposal, the current structure is confusing and inefficient, with some employees lacking a senior commander.
The plan would eliminate the captain rank, promoting the current captain to assistant chief.
The department would be divided into two divisions - Operations and Support Services - with each chief overseeing a division.
The newly promoted captain would also receive a 5 to 7 percent pay increase.
