PINE BLUFF, AR -- Former Pine Bluff Police Chief Brenda Davis-Jones has appealed her termination to the city attorney and is now awaiting a hearing date.
In a letter dated January 2, Davis-Jones requested a special call meeting to appeal her firing. As standard procedure, a review board -- made up of city employees -- must schedule a hearing for the chief.
Moments after being sworn in, Mayor Debe Hollingsworth fired Davis Jones and tapped Jeff Hubanks to become the interim chief. Davis Jones had served as chief since 2010.
