Public Forum for Chief of Police Finalists

The City of Brookings invites questions from the public for a community forum next week to help decide who will be the next chief of police.

At the forum, each Police Chief candidate will have 40 minutes to provide information about their qualifications and background as well as respond to questions submitted by residents. Due to time limits, questions will be selected as time allows.

Residents will also have the opportunity to provide feedback via comment card at the event or by submitting an email. That public input will be used by search advisers and the City Manager as part of the hiring process.

The forum is next Monday, July 11th at 5:30pm.  It’s free to attend and open to the public. It will also be broadcast live on local cable Channel 9 and live streamed on the internet.
