The Chamber’s Summer Quarterly Meeting on June 18th is a double header. Chamber members and community leaders will hear from two local leaders in law enforcement: Johnson County Sheriff Bob Alford and City of Burleson Chief of Police Billy Cordell.
Sheriff Alford will address crime statistics in our county, the work of the Sheriff’s Department and other county-wide law enforcement issues. Sheriff Alford has served as Johnson County Sheriff since 1977 and has over thirty years of combined law enforcement experience. His department has implemented numerous improvement and change initiatives under Alford’s leadership. In the 2000 and 2005 General Elections, Sheriff Alford was re-elected without opposition.
Chief Cordell will speak on crime and law enforcement issues specific to our fast-growing city and about the new Burleson Police Department facilities located on SW Wilshire Boulevard. Prior to his role as chief of the Burleson PD, Cordell served for nearly thirty years with the Fort Worth Police Department, where he held a number of leadership roles, ending with title of Deputy Chief. Chief Cordell assumed leadership as Chief of Police for Burleson in June, 2014.
