Police Chief Takes UN Job

From the Hickory Daily Record: “After 25 years as chief of the Hickory Police Department, Floyd Lucas is tackling a new assignment – and getting an adventure into the bargain.

Next month, Lucas will begin a yearlong leave of absence from the police department to help develop a police force in the Serbian province of Kosovo, which used to be part of Yugoslavia.

Lucas’ leave is unpaid. He’s accepted a contract mission through the U.S. State Department and will serve as a senior police adviser with the United Nations.”
