March 4, 2019 - ​The City of Ann Arbor is in search of candidates for its new chief of police. This position is currently vacant, with duties being fulfilled on an interim basis.

In December and January, an online survey and public meetings helped the city gather input from the community on traits, priorities and qualifications the ideal candidate should possess. The online survey, alone, garnered more than 300 responses. More than half of the respondents noted “good communicator," “ethical," “promotes a culture of responsibility," “promotes a culture of openness" and “community engagement focused" as among the most important qualities for the new police chief. The city has contracted with Strategic Government Resources to assist with the community engagement efforts.

Those seeking to lead the CALEA-accredited City of Ann Arbor Police Department can learn more and apply for the position via the city's police chief recruitment website:  Applications are being accepted through Monday, March 25.
