Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is expected to announce his pick for the city’s next police chief.
Who Murray chooses to lead the department faces a tough road ahead. The new chief will be tasked with meeting the Department of Justice’s demands while restoring the community’s faith in the department and appeasing the rank and file.
The final three are Kathleen O'Toole, former police commissioner of Boston, Robert Lehner, police chief in Elk Grove, California, and Frank Milstead, police chief in Mesa, Arizona.
KUOW’s The Record featured these candidates and people familiar with their style. Those interviews are compiled below.
