Denny Jones pushed for 'Rachel's Law' after his narcotics personnel botched a drug sting that led to the murder of a naive confidential informant
NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- Dennis Jones, one of the Sunshine State's top cops, wants to come home. The Tallahassee police chief and former Daytona Beach police chief is among seven semi-finalists to become New Smyrna Beach's next police chief.
Jones, by far is the most experienced and high profile of the seven semi-finalists to lead the New Smyrna Beach police force. He and Acting Police Chief Michael Brouillette, the only New Smyrna Beach PD applicant, have the strongest name recognition among the seven in the running to replace Ron Pagano who retired in December.
