Straily resigns as police chief

by Todd Brooks

Comanche police chief Bill Straily has resigned his position effective Dec. 31.

"I, Chief Bill Straily, would like to thank the citizens of Comanche for their continued support of me as your police chief," Straily said in a statement to the Comanche Times. "I have enjoyed every minute serving as your police chief. It is with heavy heart that I must move on. It has truly been a pleasure to serve and protect you."

City manager Chuck Ralls thanked Straily for his service.

"(Chief Straily) left the city in good standing," Ralls said in a text message to the Comanche Times. "I am thankful for his years of service to Comanche and the contributions he has made. We wish him well in his future endeavors."

Straily said he doesn't have any immediate plans but he does have a few law enforcement options available if he chooses to continue in the field.

He became police chief in Comanche in June 2018.
