McCall Begins Advertising For New Police Chief

Posted By on Fri, Jul 5, 2013 at 11:45 AM

In June, Boise Weekly sat down with McCall Mayor Don Bailey (BW, News, "Small Town, Big Headlines," June 26, 2013) to talk about a number of issues, including the fact that his city was without a permanent chief of police since the February dismissal of former chief Jerry Summers. Bailey told BW that the city wasn't "in a big rush" to find Summers' replacement.

"We have an interim police chief, Larry Stokes," said Bailey. "I think the department is doing fine. There has been a lot of criticism [leveled at the department], but I think most of that was in the past."

And now, the city is finally getting around to launch a search for a new chief. This week's McCall Star-News reports that an advertisement for the position has been posted on the city's website.

According to the advertisement the city is looking for someone to "set the tone ... by conducting all personal and professional interactions openly, honestly and ethically."

McCall City manager Gene Drabinksi and a team of seven current McCall police officers will screen the first round of applicants. According to the advertisement, the city hopes to have a new chief in place by November.
