City of Centre Mourns Former Police Chief Val Courtney

With a heavy heart, I would like to ask all citizens to pray for the Courtney family. We lost a great man, police officer, and a wonderful Police Chief. Chief Courtney was the heart of the Centre Police Department since 1992 until his retirement in 2011. All flags in our city will be lowered to half mast honoring Chief Courtney. From my office, city council members and all city employees, thank you Chief Courtney for making us all better people by being in our lives. Chief Courtney will be greatly missed. –Mayor Tony Wilkie, City of Centre
