New Doral police chief sworn in
DORAL, Fla. (WSVN) -- The City of Doral swore in their new chief of police, Tuesday.
Richard Blom will now head Doral's Police Department. The 60-year old previously worked at the Miami Police Department for more than 30 years.
Blom said he had many goals for the department. "My job will be to move the department on several fronts, from suppressing crime, alleviating traffic congestion, enhancing officer capabilities through progressive training," he said. "We will make significant progress in all these areas."
Blom replaces Ricardo Gomez, who was fired by the former city manager following a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation into alleged mishandling of taxpayer dollars. Gomez was ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing, but was let go anyway.
