City of La Joya Names New Police Chief
LA JOYA - The City of La Joya has named a new police chief, Julian Gutierrez, to lead the department and has been with the department for five years.
He had been serving as interim chief since May after his predecessor, Jose Del Angel, committed suicide. Chief Gutierrez says he's used to the position now and he's ready to move forward in his effort to fight crime. His first order of business as chief is to increase his police force since there are less than two dozen officers on duty.
