Nassau Bay hires new police chief


After a months-long search Tim Cromie was sworn in as the new Nassau Bay police chief Nov. 13.

Kenneth Campbell, the previous police chief, retired in May, after which an “extensive search process” for the next chief began, according to a Nov. 14 press release.

“Cromie’s background and experience make him a great fit for our city,” City Manager Jason Reynolds said. “Tim brings a fantastic servant leader attitude to the team and is a great addition to an already outstanding police department. I am confident chief Cromie will continue Nassau Bay’s commitment to community policing and outreach.”

Cromie recently served as a sergeant for the Dickinson Police Department’s criminal investigation division. He has had a career in law enforcement since 1985, according to the release.

“I am excited to be part of the Nassau Bay Police Department and serving the citizens of Nassau Bay,” Cromie said. “I look forward to leading this great department of men and women in blue. We promise to provide the best service we can to our citizens and continue to keep Nassau Bay a safe and enjoyable community.”
