“I am honored and humbled to be selected to be a member of this great organization,” Kimble said in a statement. “I am thankful to the Killeen City Council, [City Manager Ron Olson] and the selection committee for the opportunity to lead the Killeen Police Department and to join a dynamic management team.”
