Help choose Wheat Ridge’s next chief of police

Posted

Wheat Ridge recently launched a national search for its next chief of police, following the retirement of Chief Dan Brennan, who had served in that role since 2004.

The city has hired Public Sector Search and Consulting (PSSC) to lead the search process for a replacement.

Residents can help determine the qualities and experiences most important in the next police chief through an online survey conducted by PSSC, open now through Sun., Sept. 22, and share their input at a community forum on Wed., Sept. 18, from 6:30–7:30 p.m. at the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center at 4500 Kipling St.

“Public Sector Search and Consulting’s sole focus is police chief recruitment, and the company comes highly recommended for the collaborative and innovative way they go about recruiting this important role,” stated Patrick Goff, city manager for Wheat Ridge. “With this in mind we are very excited to offer Wheat Ridge residents these opportunities to get involved and shape the future of the Wheat Ridge Police Department.”

The survey is available online and hard copies are also available at City Hall at 7500 W. 29th Ave., the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center at 4005 Kipling St. and at the Active Adult Center at 6363 W 35th Ave. In addition to the community forum planned for Sept. 18, PSSC will also hold employee focus group meetings to gain a better understanding of the qualities the department seeks in its next chief.

“This unique public process offers community members a great opportunity to help determine the next chief for Wheat Ridge,” continued Goff. “And we hope many people will take the time to complete the survey and attend the meeting to provide us with their thoughts.”
