Thedrick Andres Named Acting Henderson Police Chief

Thedrick Andres has stepped in as the acting police chief in Henderson after the city fired LaTesha Watson.

Andres told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he has been tasked with repairing relationships with police unions and firming up department policies.

City officials placed former chief Watson on paid administrative leave in February and fired her about a month later.

It’s the second time in less than two years Henderson has lost a police chief amid controversy.

Patrick Moers left the department last year amid sexual harassment allegations. Deputy City Manager Bristol Ellington said there are no immediate plans to recruit a permanent chief as Andres takes the lead.
