The city of Ozark has began soliciting applications for its next chief of police. This week’s job posting comes after the recent resignation of Lyle Hodges, who was reprimanded in May after a report alleging misconduct within the department. 

City Administrator Steve Childers tells KSMU that the biggest thing Ozark is looking for in a new chief is leadership, and for someone who will be “very engaged.”
