New Police Chief Hired in Plum Grove: Outgoing Liberty County Precinct 6 Constable John Joslin has accepted the newly created position of Chief of Police for the incorporated city of Plum Grove, in north Liberty County.  Joslin will assume his new duties when his term as Constable has concluded in January of 2021. History tells us Plum Grove had a Police Department until it was disbanded in 2005. With the significant growth in that area, the City Council of Plum Grove decided to re-establish the Police Department there and hired Constable John Joslin to be its new Police Chief. Eventually, in addition to Joslin, there will be two part time police officers hired to patrol the city of Plum Grove. Joslin has been involved in law enforcement for 28 years, the last 8 years as elected Precinct 6 Constable.  He has also served with the Beaumont ISD Police Department and with Cleveland and Splendora. Joslin lost his re-election bid to the Constables post when voters choose Zack Harness to be the next Precinct 6 Constable. *************************************************************************
