The City of Pearl will soon have a new mayor. Jake Windham beat his opponents in the June general election. He will have the opportunity to appoint some positions.
We’re told that the two came to a mutual agreement about Sarrett’s retirement.
WJTV reached out to Mayor-Elect Jake Windham and he released this statement:
I have had the pleasure of knowing Chief Tim Sarrett for most of my life. He was one of my first supervisors at the Pearl Police Department many years ago. I caught wind of his possible retirement during the Law Fit competition over the weekend, and spoke with Chief Sarrett yesterday. I wish him well on his retirement, and hope to use his immense knowledge of police work and our city as I transition into my role as Mayor of the City of Pearl.
