Chief of Police Wesley Freeman said his department is a six-person team.
“We all work good together as a group, days and nights. Everybody’s willing to step in, pitch in and help,” Freeman said. “We’re lucky to have a good community where we, not like some of the bigger cities, we don’t have very much crime. It’s a low rate, and we’re appreciate of that.”
Freeman is Hallsville native who graduated in 1979 and grew up in the town.
“I know a lot of people in the community now,” Freeman said. “I’ve only been their chief for almost six years now, but I know a lot of the folks coming in and that makes a good working relationship with the community also.”
