Payson is fortunate in having Gordy Gartner as their Police Chief. I have known him for many years and I speak as a person of a police executive background.
I retired as the assistant chief of the Phoenix Police Department in 1969 and after that I served almost seven years as the chief of the Criminal Division of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
It is unfortunate that persons are trying to inject politics into the operation of the police department.
