Norfolk is down to three finalists in the search for their new police chief.
The city is seeking input from residents to help make the final decision.
The candidates have all been in high-level administration positions for over a decade, with one currently serving as a sitting chief.
While having previous chief experience can be helpful, the city manager emphasized that managerial experience is essential for the role.
All three candidates have expressed support for policing equity and using data to determine disparities in police interactions with the community.
The next police chief must also be out in the community and listen to stakeholders.
Residents can provide feedback on the candidates by going to the city’s website and reading their answers to questions.
The final decision could come in the first week of April.
