Hamilton Chief Promotes Community Policing

Hamilton Police Chief Robb Bell
  • Interview with Robb Bell

Hamilton’s new police chief says his first few weeks in charge have been eye-opening.

Robb Bell assumed control of the department on July 1, following the retirement of former Police Chief Walt Sellens.

Bell has been in law enforcement for 12 years, the last seven with the Hamilton Police Department.

He appreciates how Sellens took the time to prepare him to be the man in charge.

Bell says some of his top priorities as chief are to combat the spread of drugs into the community and to make sure Hamilton’s children know the police department has their backs.

Hamilton Waiting to Clean-Up

Crews respond to the fire in January that took the life of a young child and destroyed several buildings.

Hamilton must continue to play the “waiting game” when it comes to cleaning up what remains of two buildings in the middle of the 900-block of Broadway.

The structures were destroyed by a fire last January.  The deadly blaze also took the life of a young child.

Police Chief Robb Bell says Hamilton is trying to take ownership of one of the buildings from an owner who lives in Oklahoma.

He says Veldon Gray has not responded after being served papers by the city.
