PLUM GROVE HAS A NEW POLICE CHIEF

The Plum Grove City Council has made a decision on an Interim Police Chief for the city. Plum Grove Fire Chief Brandon Frazier was sworn in this week to replace John Joslin who was released by the city. Frazier is well known in the community. He was with Splendora Fire Department from 2002 to 2014. Part of that time was as Fire Chief. He left there in 2014 to work for the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation where he is still employed. In 2017 Frazier completed training and was awarded a Special Enforcement Certificate from the Bureau of Indian Affairs. This made Frazier the first Law Enforcement Officer in Texas history to hold concurrent federal, state, and tribal law jurisdiction. Currently, the Police Department has three patrol officers who will work under Frazier, Frank Longoria, Monica Palacios, and Jeremy Dodson. After being sworn in Frazier told the City Council he does not want to be compensated as he was the police department to build and be sustainable and build the department at a growth rate to meet the communities needs. He is looking forward to working with Liberty County Sheriff’s Office and the Liberty County District Attorney’s Office. Plum Grove has grown from a quiet heavily wooded community to now being surrounded by several large developments which are just outside the city limits. Plum Grove encompasses 7-square miles but has thousands of vehicles a day traveling through the city. Frazier plans to remain at the Reservation as an officer and work the police department in his off time.
