New Level Plains police chief believes in community policing

Local News

Level Plains, Ala. (WDHN)—A new Level Plains police chief is on the beat but he’s no stranger to the small Dale County city
of two-thousand.

Earlier this month, Johnny “Boy” Summers, Junior was sworn-in as Level Plains’ new police chief.

Following his civilian job at Ft. Rucker each day, Chief Summers heads to his law enforcement career. For the chief,
policing is not just a job. It’s a passion that gets in your blood.

Chief Summers says “just seeing how the world is and I have a new granddaughter who made me think wanting to help other peoples
children to make this a better place to live.”

The 1991 Daleville High graduate spent 15 months attending the Law Enforcement Academy in Jefferson County on the weekends
to earn his law enforcement certification.

He believes everyone gets a square deal, and there should be no favoritism shown during a criminal investigation.
Chief Summers says “it’s a better understanding of what law enforcement does and see the positive side of law enforcement, not always what you see on tv. Level Plains
wants to community police more than anything.”

Level Plains is a city of two thousand residents sandwiched between Enterprise to the west, and Daleville to the east.
As such, the Dale County municipality is expected to see increased population growth as residential and
business development continues.
