Curious how being an adjunct (we will call you if we need you) part time instructor after retiring from active law enforcement in 2015 is considered current law enforcement experience? Folks you may want to google the short tenure your new chief had in some place called Dolton Il years ago. I don't blame him though. It is clear the mayor doesn't know that he doesn't know how to hire a police chief.
