Conny Clay Confirmed as Police Chief
At a regular meeting of the Olney City Council on Monday, Nov. 12, Chief Civilian Officer Conny Clay was officially sworn-in as Olney’s new police chief.
Clay took the oath of office with the assistance of City Attorney Bill Myers.
“I, Conny Clay, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the duties of the office of the chief of police for the city of Olney and the state of Texas,” Conny said. “I will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the constitution and laws of the United States and this state, so help me God.”
Clay came to Olney earlier this year, initially taking the position of chief civilian administrator while his peace officer certification was pending. Clay brings with him almost four decades of law enforcement experience, having previously served as a deputy and interim police chief for the Shawnee, Okla. Police Department, an investigator for several Oklahoma agencies, and, most recently, as police chief for the Choctaw, Okla. Police Department.
