Navasota has welcomed a new police chief.
Shawn Myatt joined the staff on March 1, taking the place of interim chief Allwin Barrow.
Myatt says he's excited about the position and is settling in.
He comes from west Texas and has worked with Navasota's city manager in the past.
Myatt says he's getting to know his staff, and is ready to get to work.
A reception was held Thursday afternoon to welcome Myatt and say goodbye to Barrow.
