Anadarko Names Police Chief

Oklahoman Published: October 29, 1984

Donald Ray "D.R." Johnson, 33, has been named Anadarko's new police chief, City Manager Robert Williamson announced Sunday.

Williamson selected Johnson from among 15 applicants.

Johnson, currently the chief of police in Apache, "has worked closely with Anadarko's 22-man police force," Williamson said.

Johnson holds a B.A. in sociology from the University of Science and Arts in Chickasha, and worked for four years with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Johnson said he would like to stress the further training and educating of officers in the Anadarko Police Department. "I also want to make the people of Anadarko feel comfortable with the police department, to know that we are there to serve them," he said.

Johnson has lived in Anadarko since 1976 with his wife, Patricia L. Johnson, an Anadarko attorney. BIOG: NAME:
