Hailey policeman named Bellevue marshal

Patrolman Larry Clark served 20 years in the Navy

Larry Clark

Hailey policeman Larry Clark, 50, will take over the position of Bellevue marshal on Oct. 1, following a transition made recently that will shift law enforcement in that city from the Blaine County Sheriff's Office to the Hailey Police Department.

Clark is a patrolman who has also served as an investigator with the department. Prior to his stint in Hailey, he served for four years on the Sun Valley Police Department.

Serving as Bellevue marshal will round out Clark's experience in law enforcement from one end of the Wood River Valley to the other.

"I wanted the advancement and to serve the city of Bellevue and see that they have a good police department," he said. "It will be a bump in pay and more responsibility."

Clark will oversee a police force made up of Rene Rodriguez and two new recruits who are in the process of being hired by the Hailey Police Department.

"I will go out and get acquainted with business owners after I begin, to find out what they need from the Marshal's Office," he said.

Clark served in the Navy for 20 years. He was one of several contenders considered earlier this year for appointment to the position of Blaine County sheriff.
