Bruce Hagerty, Chico’s new police chief, was sworn in on March 4, held his first press conference a few hours later and then attended his first City Council meeting that night. The new top cop said the somewhat soiled reputation of the Los Angeles Police Department, where he served for 20 years, is due in part to the "arrogant leaders" who ran the show. He added that he is very aware of the baggage he brings to town.
