The Coffeyville City Commission approves a memorandum with the Fraternal Order of Police. However, the process during the commission meeting spurred discussion on why the Coffeyville P-D has struggled to recruit new officers. Commissioner Chris Williams lays a portion of the blame on City Manager Kendal Francis.
Francis says changes have been made to enhance the job offers. Police Chief Kwin Bromley says it is a difficult situation now with very few young people interested in police work. He says it is a national problem.
