Lt. Cameron Ray has been put in charge of the Dublin Police Department following former police chief Bobby Mendez’s promotion to city manager.
Mendez assumed the role of Dublin city manager on Tuesday.
He was reportedly offered the position by the Dublin City Council when longtime city manager Nancy Wooldridge announced her retirement.
Ray, who has been with the Dublin Police Department for three years, told BTS News on Tuesday that he has not officially been named as interim police chief.
“But I am the officer in charge of the day-to-day operations,” he said.
Ray has a long history in law enforcement.
He worked for the Somervell County Sheriff’s Office for two years and the Erath County Sheriff’s Office for four.
The Dublin City Council is expected to name the city’s next police chief on Monday.
