Lubbock Police Chief Floyd Mitchell Resigns
The search for a new Chief of Police in Lubbock will begin soon.
Lubbock Police Chief Floyd Mitchell has resigned from the Lubbock Police Department. His last day will be September 22nd. The resignation comes after the Lubbock City Council met in Executive Session on Tuesday beginning at 11:00 a.m. KAMC reported at the time that Mitchell was the subject of the closed door session, but was not told the reason.
Mitchell's resignation from the Lubbock Police Department follows news of abandoned 911 phone calls, and Lubbock Mayor Tray Payne telling KFYO's Chad Hasty in July that things "must improve" at the Department.
Mitchell was sworn in as Chief of the Lubbock Police Department in November of 2019. Prior to Lubbock, Mitchell served 4 years with the Temple Police Department.
KFYO will continue to update this story as more details emerge. Lubbock City Councilman Steve Massengale will appear on KFYO's Sunrise LBK with Tom Collins and Ken Corbin on Wednesday, September 13 at 7:00 a.m.
