Council to Discuss Police Chief Position

The Chapel Hill Town Council will discuss its desires and expectations for a new police chief in a public meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17, in the Council Chamber of Town Hall, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

The Council’s discussion is one of a series of focus groups being held to gather early input that will help develop community criteria for the police chief. Those criteria will be used to assess the skills of candidates for the position.

Interested citizens may attend the Council meeting or attend an upcoming public forum on the police chief search scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23, at Hargraves Community Center, 216 N. Roberson St. Meetings also have been held on Jan. 9 and Jan. 11 to gather community input.

The police chief position has been advertised nationally to draw a diverse pool of qualified and outstanding candidates. The NC League of Municipalities is assisting with the process of assessing candidates.
