Meigs police chief surrenders job

THOMASVILLE — Meigs’ police chief resigned, effective Tuesday.

Drew Campbell, also a Meigs police officer, resigned Tuesday, leaving the town with one full-time officer and one part time.

Linda Harris, who was sworn in as Meigs mayor Thursday and immediately ousted by the city council, is in the mayor’s seat.

Tommy Coleman, Meigs city attorney, told the Times-Enterprise Tuesday the council did not have enough votes to oust Harris.

Luckey said he resigned because of “a hostile working environment.”

“I resigned yesterday morning when she (Harris) walked in,” Luckey said.

The chief’s resignation was to be effective Jan. 20, but he left the position Tuesday.

“I pretty much can’t make decisions as chief of police anymore,” Luckey said.

Luckey joined Meigs Police Department in June 2010. He became chief in January 2012.

He said a number of Meigs citizens have asked him to remain as chief.

Luckey expressed concern about the well-being of Meigs citizens and regrets leaving the chief post because of his concerns about residents.

However, he explained, in the best interests of his family and his future, he felt he must “move on.”

Luckey has been offered a job with another law enforcement agency.
