Deja vu for Palmetto's new police chief

Morale was low at the city police department.

Leadership was needed.

A new chief was hired from the outside to rectify the situation.

Before Charlie Wells embarked on his 22-year run as Manatee County sheriff, he was police chief for the City of Bradenton.

It was January 1980 when Wells, a Florida Highway Patrol veteran, took over and during his 33-month tenure, Wells established order and stability in the department.

Will his son have the same impact in Palmetto?
