It's the start of a new era at TPD...the Dennis Jones era.
Today is his first day on the job as Tallahassee's new chief of police.
Jones is the former police chief in Daytona Beach.
He was one of four final candidates interviewed last month.
Chief Jones has said he is excited about taking over as Tallahassee's police chief.
Jones replaces former Chief Walt McNeil -- who was named head of the state Department of Juvenile Justice.
