Despite challenges in the candidate selection process, the City of Minneapolis continues to look for a new police chief to lead its agency.
According to a source, it will be two years after George Floyd’s passing before the city of Minneapolis searches for a new police chief.
According to a report by ABC News published on Tuesday about a worldwide search notification, the opportunity to manage a police force in a major US metropolis that is willing to make significant and constructive changes that create community trust and protect public safety is “a rare and exceptional opportunity.”
According to ABC News, the Minneapolis Police Department currently has 756 sworn officers and 170 civilian people on its payroll. In addition, the department has a total of 270 support staff members.
According to a recent order issued by the Supreme Court of Minnesota, Mayor Jacob Frey of Minneapolis did not hire a sufficient number of police officers that were mandated to do so under the city charter.
