Durham website seeks citizen input on police chief search

Durham Police

DURHAM, N.C. – Durham residents interested in providing feedback about factors the city should consider in the search for the next police chief can now do so online.

The website, http://bit.ly/durhampolicechiefsearch, is part of the first phase of the national search process to allow the public to provide input directly to Developmental Associates, the search agency hired to help the city.

City manager Tom Bonfield said the recruitment process is expected to take about four months, with the first phase starting now as Developmental Associates  begins gathering information from the public as well as various community stakeholders, including the police department staff and other city leaders.

In mid-December, police department staff input sessions along with two community forums, one to be conducted in Spanish, will be held. Specific locations and times for these community sessions will be announced next week.
