Pittsburgh Residents to Explain What They Want From Next Police Chief

Search ongoing


Community groups say they see Pittsburgh's search for a new police chief as an opportunity for new leadership to bring changes: improving police-community relations, reducing abuse allegations and increasing minority hiring.

They and other members of the public will have the opportunity to make their feelings known Wednesday when city council holds a public hearing and a post-agenda meeting to discuss the qualities a new chief should have. At a public hearing, speakers are limited to three minutes, but a post-agenda meeting involves a more open discussion among council members and invited guests. The post-agenda meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday in council chambers.
