The following biographical information was provided by Bluefield, Va., Harry L Cundiff -- the new host of WVVA's 'All Points Bulletin.'

"I am originally from Nemours W Va., attended public school in Mercer County -- including Bluefield High School. I was drafted into the U.S. Army, and upon returning to civilian life met Judy Staples and married her.We had a son, Thomas, and moved to the Virginia side.

I came into law enforcement as a dispatcher with the Bluefield Va. Police Department, then served as a Deputy Sheriff with the Tazewell County Sheriff's Department. I attended The Southwest Law Enforcement Academy for a grand total of 200 hours and I  also attended Southwest Va. Community College.

I got out of law enforcement for a few years and worked in the private sector in sales. I missed law enforcement, though, and had the opportunity to return to the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office, working in the jail. I spent a couple of years doing that, then was given a Road Deputies job, I served civil process, worked in the Courts as a Court Bailiff, did criminal investigations and was promoted to Sergeant. I was also Chief Deputy for 5 years at the Sheriff's Office.

I then had the opportunity to become Chief of the Bluefield Va. Police Department. I have served on the Southwest Va. Criminal Justice Executive Board every year I have been Chief. I serve on The Governors' Re-Entry Council and am a member of the Virginia Chiefs of Police Association, and The  Blue Ridge Police Chiefs Association. I have attended almost every training class that you can imagine relating to Law Enforcement. 

I am also a minister, Pastor of The Jesus Church of Big Vain Va. where I have served for 9 years.
