It appears likely that Officer Mark Dunnam will continue to be a familiar sight in downtown and other areas.

Police Chief Bill McDaniel gave Dunnam a rousing endorsement in a review of his first year assigned to a beat that includes downtown, midtown and the city's public housing projects.

McDaniel told city commissioners at their May 14 meeting that Dunnam has developed a rapport with business owners and residents.

"He'll talk with anybody, and he takes what he hears and he follows up on it," McDaniel said.

The commissioners seemed inclined to approve funding the position for another year.

Vice Mayor Bill Dodson said he frequently sees Dunnam at community events and around town.

"He's a very personal young fellow," he said.

Other commissioners offered similar words of praise.

The position was created last year using money from the city's Community Redevelopment Agency. McDaniel assigned Dunnam, who has worked for the police department for about three years.
