The city of Chattahoochee Hills bid farewell to its outgoing police chief, Stoney Mathis, earlier this month. He accepted a position in a neighboring municipality. Even though his resignation last month was unexpected, the city manager wasted no time posting the position and seeking a new police chief. According to a press release the city has named Jim Little the new police chief, who was selected out of a field of numerous highly qualified and experienced candidates.
Little brings over two decades of public safety, crime prevention, officer training and management, and program leadership experience. His law enforcement career started back in 1997 with the city of Alpharetta after serving in the United States Navy as a submariner from 1981 to 1996.
Given that Chief Little has some ongoing obligations with his current employer, the city of Alpharetta, he will be sworn-in as Chattahoochee Hills’ Police Chief in the coming months. While his full-time status as the city’s new Police Chief will not begin until November, he will be spending as much as time as possible in Chattahoochee Hills in the interim, to become acclimated to his new position and team, and begin serving our community.
