Police Chief selection process

October 24, 2013 4:09 PM

Public Statement by the Board of Police and Fire Commissioners


Commissioners have received constructive comment from a variety of sources regarding our

standards and procedures for the appointment of our next Police Chief. After thoughtful

consideration we have determined that the best interest of the City of Madison and the Police

Department will be served by opening our process to the widest range of interested applicants.

While we are deeply gratified by the strength of the Department and the leadership available among

its current personnel, the recognized national stature of the Department and the City encourages us

to welcome candidates both from the Madison Police Department and more broadly from the

profession at large.


We will now implement this decision for an open search by preparing appropriate notice, application,

and examination materials and conducting a rigorous selection process and appointment process.

We expect to announce our working calendar for the appointment process within the next ten days.


George R. Kamperschroer, President
Fabiola Hamdan, Secretary
Wesley Sparkman
Michael J. Lawton
