Rockport names new police chief, welcomes canine officer


The Rockport City Council in January named Toby Morales as the city's new police chief. Morales, who had been part of the department for several years, said he wants to help the city grow and wants law enforcement officers to be a community resource.

He has already taken several steps to improve the police department, including the addition of a new canine officer.

Wey is a two-year-old Belgian Malinois who until February was part of the Haskell Police Department. He's trained in narcotics, tracking and article search. 

The City of Rockport extends thanks to Providence Veterinary, Tractor Supply Company and Farmer's Co-op for their support of the new canine.
