SHERMAN, TX -- Another longtime officer will soon take over as the new leader of the city's police department.

City manager George Olson says after five interviews with both candidates, he picked Otis Henry as interim chief. Henry is set to be sworn in as chief at Monday's city council meeting.

Olson says assistant chief Ken Francis was also considered for the post and took the news well. "Just as I thought, very professional, both very, very professional. Obviously it's a disappointment, but you know from the beginning, both supported each other," says Olson.

Henry started 29 years ago as a reserve officer, advanced through the ranks, and also got a master's degree, Olson said. A retirement reception for Chief Tom Watt will be held Friday morning at City Hall.
