Kyle names Blake new police chief

Hays Highway Editor

KYLE – It’s safe to say incoming Kyle Police Chief Michael Blake is in for a period of adjustment when be begins his new duties in late February or early March.

Blake comes to Kyle after six years as police chief in Tomball, a town of 12,000 people with 40 sworn personnel in the police department. In Kyle, Blake takes the reigns of a town approaching 30,000 residents with 18 sworn personnel on the police force.

In other words, Blake is trading his Tomball position to run the cops in a town with more than twice as many residents and fewer than half as many sworn personnel.
