Who will lead the Moss Point Police Department?

Tuesday night the Moss Point Board of Aldermen is expected to vote to either uphold or override Mayor Billy Broomfield's veto of Calvin Hutchins for police chief.

The mayor's veto is not sitting well with many residents. A petition to protest Broomfield's veto continues to get bigger. So far more than 600 signatures have been collected on the petition. The petition began after the Board of Aldermen voted 4 to 3 to appoint Hutchins who is a 20 year law enforcement veteran and Moss Point native.      

Hutchins was supposed to replace Keith Davis who resigned from the chief's job. Broomfield later rejected the board's decision saying Hutchins wasn't qualified to handle the  top law enforcement spot in the city.

That Moss Point Board of Aldermen meeting is set for six Tuesday night.
