The Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability announced three finalists for the next superintendent of the Chicago Police Department.
On Thursday, the Commission recommended Madison, Wisconsin Chief of Police Shon F. Barnes, CPD Chief of Constitutional Policing and Reform Angel Novalez and CPD Chief of Counterterrorism Larry Snelling for the post.
“The City has reached an important milestone in our search for a new superintendent of the Chicago Police Department. After diligent review and assessment, including deep community engagement, local and national searches, the Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability (CCPSA) has identified three finalists from a field of highly qualified candidates,” said Mayor Johnson in a statement.
“I am confident that Chicago’s next superintendent will inspire trust, foster collaboration, and lead with integrity,” said Mayor Johnson.
According to a city ordinance, the Mayor has 30 days to review the finalists. He could either select one candidate or reject them all, which would force the Commission to start the process over.
