Fritch residents have become concerned that Monte Leggett of Fritch has taken the place of Police Chief Kirk Coker.
Reassuring the community, Fritch City Manager Bobby Lamb stated, â€śChief Coker is still the chief.â€ť
According to Leggett, things are still the same at Fritch Police Department.
Lamb announced Kirk Coker as the Chief of Police for the City of Fritch in 2011.
Coker has been with the Fritch Police Department since August 22, 2011.

WOLFORTH-On Monday afternoon, the Brownwood Lady Lions scored three goals in a 10-minute span, in the second half, to pull away for the 4-0 win over the Borger Lady Bulldogs in the 4A Area Round playoffs at Frenship High School.
Due to a strong wind from the south, each team enjoyed having an extra teammate in Mother Nature for a half of play. Unfortunately, the Lady Lions would be the team taking advantage of the wind, by scoring three goals and being able to keep the ball on one side of the field for the majority of the second half.

Entering Saturday, Bulldog fans had wonder how the Borger Bulldogs would perform in their first game after losing a family member within the Bulldog program. The answer was a pleasant surprise, as the Bulldogs rallied around each other and put together a dominating performance against District 1-3A foes the Perryton Rangers, with the Bulldogs leaving Huber Park with the 13-1 win in five innings.
The Irish werenâ€™t so lucky Saturday afternoon when the WT Comanches came to Shamrock and held the men in green scoreless in an 8-0 win. Carlos Juarez went all seven innings and got the win for the Tribe. He fanned six hitters while walking just one. Juarez also singled to left field and walked twice, scoring three runs. The Tribe made a couple of heads up plays defensively and Chase Elliott did a nice job behind the plate.
On Saturday, the Perryton Rangerettes topped the Borger Lady Bulldogs 10-8 in District 1-3A play. The Lady Bulldogs drop to 0-3 in district play, while Perryton improved to 2-1. The Lady Bulldogs will begin the second round of district play tomorrow afternoon hosting Pampa at 4:30 p.m. Borger senior Lauren Hernandez comes in to score a run on Saturday.
