    Law And Order

    Greg Allen, the current police chief of El Paso, Texas, has died. He was 71. El Paso was ranked among the safest large cities in the nation during his nearly 15 years at the helm of the Police Department. No easy feat, as it's a border town with Mexico, not to mention being in Texas. The news comes as the federal Department of Justice decided not to seek the death penalty for El Paso Walmart shooter Patrick Crusius. https://www.elpasotimes.com/story/news/local/el-paso/2023/01/17/el-paso-police-chief-greg-allen-dies-led-department-nearly-15-years/69816394007/
