West Point Police Chief ..., 20 Nov 2014 [cached]
West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley said WPPD would begin installing the radios next week and completely switch to digital by the end of December or early January. He said the cost of the radios totaled about $40,000, and was paid for mostly with city money though some grants were used, as well. "As tight as things have been, the city has really bent over backward to appropriate some money in the budget for these radios," Brinkley said. "So we tried to make sure we got the most bang for our buck. You can spend as much as you've got and more on radios. It's not just the radios - you have to purchase repeaters, base stations and other components." He said WPPD purchased 22 Hytera handheld radios and 15 mobile radios. This was enough to outfit every officer in the force and every vehicle in WPPD's fleet, according to Brinkley.
Courtez McMillian, 22, of Okolona, was ..., 26 Aug 2014 [cached]
Courtez McMillian, 22, of Okolona, was jailed pending charges of aggravated assault, Police Chief Tim Brinkley said in a statement. Okolona is about 30 miles north of West Point, where events unfolded outside two restaurants early Saturday. Investigators are reviewing video footage from Saturday and have compiled a list of other possible suspects from a nearby county, Brinkley said.
Brinkley said a Waffle House employee told police who answered a 1 a.m. disturbance call that a patron was creating a disturbance and upsetting other patrons. After he was asked to leave, employees also asked the other patrons to leave, Brinkley said.
Knighten said that as he and Weems headed from the Waffle House to Weems' house, they went into a Huddle House restaurant with a nearly vacant parking lot. However, he said, they apparently had been followed by more than 20 African-Americans.
Brinkley told AP that surveillance video and witness accounts indicate far fewer than 20 people were involved and watching. He said investigators reviewing video believe most if not all the people on a list of other possible suspects are from Monroe County, adjacent to both Clay County, where West Point is located, and Chickasaw County, where Okolona is located.
The police chief did not immediately answer an emailed query about McMillian's race and whether the video shows black people attacking a white person, or whether police can charge someone with a hate crime.
Prosecutors and a grand jury would have to decide whether to bring a hate crime charge, Brinkley said.
"All we do is process the evidence and turn the case over to the district attorney who in turn presents it to the grand jury," he said in the news release. "It's within their discretion to add the hate crime enhancement."
He said the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and the District Attorney's Office have been brief about the case.
Brinkley told AP on Monday that investigators are also trying to find out why it took so long for anyone to call 911 about the fight outside the Huddle House. He said a caller told a 911 dispatcher at 2 a.m. Sunday that a fight was going on, but when officers arrived "all of the perpetrators had left.
"Our investigation has revealed that most, if not all, of the assailants are from adjourning Monroe County," Police Chief Tim Brinkley said. "A list of suspects has been developed and detectives have arrested one man in connection with this crime."
Arrested this afternoon was 22-year-old Courtez McMillian of 30469 Old Hwy 41 Ololona, Miss. He is being held in the Clay County Detention Center, pending charges of aggravated assault. Other arrests are pending. Brinkley also commented that a hate crime is an enhancement penalty.
"It's up to the Grand Jury to make this determination. All we do is process the evidence and turn the case over to the District Attorney who in turn presents it to the Grand Jury. It's within their discretion to add the hate crime enhancement. Brinkley said.

West Point Police Department responded to a number of incidents, including several calls related to domestic violence, simple assault and disturbance of the peace, according to WPPD Chief Tim Brinkley. "I haven't compared the numbers yet, but it appears we were a little busier this year than last year," Brinkley said. "The volume of calls was high. … People were off, and when it's during the holiday, sometimes you'll see more instances of consumption of alcohol. That may be a contributing factor (to domestic violence calls)." Brinkley said the department responded to four calls of simple assault, three calls of disturbing the peace and three calls of domestic violence - one of which was an aggravated charge - in addition to traffic incidents. The department responded to a number of calls involving juveniles, as well. It's a trend Brinkley said appears to be growing nationwide, though he would not speculate as to the reasons. Specific numbers from West Point highways (traffic calls) were not available as of Tuesday, however, Brinkley said no fatalities or serious incidents were reported. "We did have a safety checkpoint," Brinkley said.

West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley said Davis' promotion was in anticipation of sending him to the law enforcement training academy in Pearl early next year. "Our goal is for him to be a fully-certified officer," Brinkley said. "He will come back from the academy with the authority to enforce laws the same as any other officer in the state." Brinkley said Davis' duties would remain the same, and included responding to calls, enforcing the city's animal ordinance and issuing citations. "He's worked out really well so far, and about 90 percent of our issues with animal control have gone away," Brinkley said.

West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley said it appeared the suspect was familiar with alarms and alarm systems, as the drug store's alarm was never triggered and the alarm company wasn't notified. Brinkley said Point City's owners were still taking inventory to determine what had been taken from the store as of Thursday. "Although Point City and other pharmacies sell other merchandise, it appears the drugs may have been the target," Brinkley said.
