Levy County Sheriff's Department to Take Over Protection of Inglis
The town of Inglis no longer has a police chief.
On July 25th, the town commission voted to buy out the chief's contract and sign a deal with Levy County Sheriffs for future protection.
Police Chief Seve Dixon accepted the buy-out and resigned.
As a result, John Dowd has been promoted to Lieutenant and handles the day to day operation of Inglis Police.
Levy County will begin services to Inglis starting October 1st.
Three new deputies will be added to cover Inglis, with three full-time Deputies and one part-time supervisior.
The town will pay $276,000 to the Levy County Sheriff's Office each year, for the first two years.
