The City of San Diego is seeking an exceptional leader to serve as the next Police Chief – a forward-thinking, collaborative person who can engage with a diverse and involved community, has experience leading and innovating in the area of public safety and has a demonstrated commitment to community-oriented policing.

San Diegans are invited to participate in community meetings happening throughout the month of January. Additionally, an online survey will be available in early January for community members to provide input and share their priorities for the next chief.

Final interviews with top candidates will be held in March 2024.
