Mart has hired Marlin police Officer Albert Cavazos as the town’s new police chief, City Manager Kevin Schaffer confirmed Tuesday.

Mart has been without a full police department for about a month.

Chief Paul Cardenas resigned earlier this month amid disagreements with the city council, staff and over a citizen’s complaint.

"Cavazos was one of three finalists,” Schaffer said.

“He will join the city and will help in the hiring of four to five new officers to re-staff the depleted department,” he said.
