Springfield’s new acting police chief says he has some ideas on how to improve the department… but he’ll only be making small changes as long as he has “interim” attached to his title.
Kenny Winslow was named by Mayor Mike Houston to take over the department temporarily, while Houston decides who he will appoint as the permanent replacement for retiring Chief Robert Williams.
Winslow says he will work to resolve possible morale problems within the department... and trust issues in the community. But he says he won’t do anything major that might have to be undone if someone else is eventually named chief. [Winslow appeared live Tuesday on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show.”]
