There can be quite a difference between being a police chief of a small town rather than a large town but Bethany Police Chief Chris Nichols is fairly content working in Bethany and he quite enjoys his job. As part of the Hometown tour, Chief Nichols says that working in a small town gives him more time to get to know people by name.
The village of Bethany has just hired another Police Officer, and Chief Nichols is looking forward to some of his goals in 2020.
Chief Nichols also talks about not having the luxury of a field officer training you in a small village like Bethany, so you learn on your feet.
Chief Chris Nichols was a guest on our Hometown Tour live from Bethany, Illinois.
