Small Va. police dept. starting over
It's been a tough year for the Brookneal, Va., police department.
Both the chief and acting chief resigned earlier this year after criminal charges in unrelated cases were filed against them. The town of about 1,200 in Campbell County lost its only other officer when he left to take a job with another department.
Now, new Police Chief Ricky Baldwin is rebuilding the department from scratch. He's hired one officer since he was appointed in October and he's looking to hire another.
Baldwin told The News & Advance that accepting the police chief's job wasn't an easy decision. But he says Brookneal is a good town and he's able to make a difference.
