Chicago Begins Search for New Police Superintendent
The search is underway for the next police superintendent in Chicago following the departure of David Brown on Thursday.
The hiring process will be led by a new commission called the Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability.
The commission will gather input from Chicago police officers, local and national leaders, and the public to create a list of potential candidates.
The application process will last for 30 days, followed by a 60-day review period during which the commission will interview candidates and conduct background checks.
The commission will then submit a list of three finalists to the mayor, who will choose one candidate or reject all three and request a new list.
In-person and virtual meetings will be held across the city to gather feedback from residents.
The inclusive process has been applauded by experts, who believe it will lead to the selection of the most effective police leader for the city.
The entire process is expected to take several months.
