Mayor Walter Dunaway said today that Police Chief C.O. Hensley returned to his post today after a 30-day layoff.

Hensley was given a month off Nov. 10 to undergo a neck operation, but he did not have it because he was unable to take an anesthesia. He entered Memorial Hospital more than two weeks ago, but remained only two days.

Sgt. O.H. Mullenax was acting chief while Hensley was on inactive status.
