After being mired in controversy the past six months, Hallsville Police Chief Greg Scott has resigned.
City aldermen are expected to swear in a new police chief tonight after Scott resigned the position two weeks ago, said Hallsville Mayor Jerry Medrano.
Taking Scott’s place is Paul Montoya, a former Longview police officer who joined the Hallsville force in January.
Medrano said Scott resigned after he was evaluated in late June. Scott was demoted to patrolman based on the results of the evaluation, Medrano said.
