      Rio Hondo names new police, fire chief

      Rio Hondo Mayor Alonzo Garza confirms a new chief to head both its police and fire departments.

      Humberto Barrera was selected early this morning by the city administrator.

      Barrera was picked from a list of six finalists:

      • Orlando Garcia
      • Douglas Montgomery
      • Daniel Cruz
      • Humberto Barrera
      • Charles Lopez
      • Don Duncan

      One of them included San Benito's former Director of Public Safety Orlando while contender Charles Lopez was serving as interim police chief.

      Mayor Garza told Action 4 News that Barrera is familiar with the area and will take Rio Hondo in the direction the city needs to head during this hurricane season.
