Following a ceremony Wednesday at City Hall, the City of Fresno has a new chief of police.
After 18 years as chief, Jerry Dyer passed the baton to Andy Hall, a 40-year-veteran of the force who’d been deputy chief since 2016.
Singing Hall’s praises for nearly 10 minutes, Dyer credited Hall with making Fresno’s streets safer by increasing the number of officers working in the traffic bureau. "There are hundreds of families that did not have to bury a loved one as the result of your efforts," Dyer said addressing Hall. "So thank you for that.”
