Sullivan City police chief to take on top cop position in Alamo
SULLIVAN CITY — A Rio Grande Valley police chief is moving from one end of Hidalgo County to the other.
In less than two weeks, Richard Ozuna will be sworn in as Alamo’s new police chief. Ozuna will be leaving his role as chief of police in Sullivan City to take on the new position closer to home.
Ozuna started his law enforcement career at the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office, where he worked his way from detention officer to captain
After he retired in 2016, Ozuna became the Sullivan City police chief.
Before Ozuna took the job, Sullivan City had trouble keeping a police chief.
Two of his predecessors were arrested on corruption charges. Ozuna rebuilt the department, re-established relationships with other law enforcement agencies and developed a strong connection with the community.
Ozuna is set to start in Alamo on March 16.
