VERONA, Miss. (AP) - Bill Johnson is putting his years of law enforcement experience and training to work as Verona’s new police chief.

Johnson worked seven years with the Florence, Alabama, Police Department. He then became a criminal investigator with the Treasury Department and later the Office of the Inspector General. He has worked executive protective details for senators and federal department heads and has been a training instructor at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1zWc4qQ ) Johnson took early retirement in 2012 as part of the federal government’s sequestration.

Verona currently has seven officers. Johnson wants to add a couple more to provide two officers on patrol during peak hours.

The 52-year-old Johnson started work Monday. He’s been organizing the department and meeting local business people.
