The project logo Police Chief Recruitment Survey

Before conducting a search for a new police chief, the City has developed a short online survey designed to give participants an opportunity to rate the city’s most pressing issues and select the most important leadership qualities and experience the new chief should have. Participants can also explain, in their own words, anything additional that they would like the City to consider when selecting the new police chief. The input will be used to guide the recruitment and selection of the best candidates.
