Altavista Names Interim Police Chief


Altavista, VA - The town of Altavista has named an interim chief of police.

Deputy Chief Kenneth Walsh will fill the post.

The announcement came at Tuesday night's town council meeting.

Former Chief Clay Hamilton was fired for insubordination in May after sending a seven page letter to the newspaper listing a number of concerns.

Hamilton told ABC 13 he only sent the letter after town leaders refused to meet with him.

Walsh has been with the department since 1997.
