Berea Police Department Chief Eric Scott was introduced to the Berea City Council Tuesday, noting he hopes citizens will feel free to communicate with his department and officers. “I”m excited to get going,” Scott said. “My office is right next door for anyone who feels the need to come by and stop to speak with us. If you guys have any concerns in the community please let us know, because we’re definitely going to address as much as we can as soon as we can.”
Scott got a laugh from council members and Mayor Fraley with his response to a request from Councilman Ronnie Terrill, who asked for Scott’s cell number. “911 is always the emergency number if you need me,” Scott joked.
