HPD has new NET Team sergeant

The Hattiesburg Police Department has a new sergeant of their N.E.T. Team tonight.  He's Terrence Bullock, a 5-year veteran of the force who was promoted to sergeant by Acting Chief Frank Misenhelter this morning.

Bullock is second in command of the N.E.T., or Neighborhood Enhancement Team.  Lt. Keith Crawford commands that division.

"We look forward to taking N.E.T. to new places that it hasn't been before," said Sgt. Bullock.  "We're going to continue serving the public, community policing, gang suppression, street-level narcotics suppression," he said.

"We look for men and women with the highest qualities of character, integrity and honesty and he is a true leader and he leads by example," said Acting Chief Frank Misenhelter, after the brief promotion ceremony at the Hattiesburg Police Department.

Sgt. Bullock replaces Sgt. Robert McGinty, who has moved from the N.E.T. Team to the Detective Division.
