“I’m excited to have Deputy Chief Spellman join the team of talented professionals who are committed to public service and excellence in the community and Police Department,” said Chavis in an email to Sandhills Sentinel. “I believe Deputy Chief Spellman will be able to assist the command staff in taking the department to the next level while upholding our core values of ‘trust, cooperation, fairness, transparency, and protection of lives and property.’”
