City Manager Seeks Citizens Input on Police Chief

What does Raleigh need the most in its next police chief? This is the question City Manager J. Russell Allen is asking all Raleigh residents as he begins the selection process for the next police chief.

The City Manager has posted a four-question survey on the City’s website at www.raleighnc.gov. He also is placing the survey as a display advertisement in local newspapers.

The survey asks for responses to:
  • What are the most important challenges and objectives facing the Raleigh Police Department now and in the years ahead?
  • What skills and qualities will a chief of police need to lead the department in meeting its challenges and objectives?
  • If you could ask the candidates for the chief of police position two questions, what would they be?
  • Do you have other thoughts you would like to share? If so, please add them on the survey sheet or on a separate sheet.
The surveys must be returned to Mr. Allen by October 11. Responses may be submitted online at www.raleighnc.gov or mailed to: J. Russell Allen, City Manager, City of Raleigh, PO Box 590, Raleigh, NC 27602.

The police chief vacancy will be created October 1 by the retirement of Harry Dolan, who has served Raleigh in that capacity since September 2007.

Deputy Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown, a veteran of the Raleigh Police Department, has been named to serve as interim chief. She was promoted to the position of deputy chief in June 2011.
