Former Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong addressed a community Town Hall meeting at the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Oakland on Saturday.
Armstrong talked about his recent firing and stated that he is not looking to get his job back.
He emphasized his commitment to the conversation around violence in the city, even though he is no longer the Chief of Police.
Armstrong was fired by Mayor Shang Tao last month amid accusations that he failed to oversee an investigation into officer misconduct.
Armstrong stated that he wants to restore his reputation and that it is important for the department and the city to move on.
The community leaders also shared their concerns about Oakland and the efforts being made to address the issues in the city.
Some attendees at the meeting continued their calls for Armstrong to be rehired.
NBC Bay Area News reached out to the mayor’s office for comment but has not yet received a response.
