The City of Grand Junction has announced the opening of the application process for the Chief of Police.
The city recently held a listening session to gather input about the qualities and the qualifications of its next Chief of Police and is offering an online survey open until Friday, Oct. 21, 2022. In addition to considering input provided during the listening session and from the survey, the process of the national search to select a new Chief of Police will include an assessment as well as interviews and meetings with department personnel, community members, and city leadership. The process is expected to take five months.
“We are committed to finding the most qualified individual to lead Grand Junction’s department of dedicated law enforcement professionals,” stated Greg Caton, city manager. “During the recruiting and hiring process for our city’s new Chief of Police, we will provide updates on our website about additional opportunities for community participation,” Caton continued. “The Chief of Police serves our city so it is important community members as well as our staff participate in the process to select the person who is the best fit for our department and our city.”
Community members can still provide input online by completing a brief survey which will close on Friday, October 21, 2022.
