According to Interim City Manager Cynthia Kurtz, “It’s important for the new City Manager and City Council to know what qualities our citizens believe a Chief of Police must possess to best serve the interests of our city and our community. What we hear will bear heavily in our selection process.”

Appointed by the City Manager, the Police Chief plans, organizes, coordinates, and directs the overall public safety program of the City in the enforcement of law and order and in the prevention of crime; coordinates assigned activities with other departments and outside agencies. This includes ensuring the department provides courteous and expedient customer service to the public and City department staff and assumes full management responsibility for all department services and activities.

For more information, or if you are unable to attend the community forum and would like to provide your input and feedback, please contact Frank Rojas, Recruitment Manager, Koff & Associates, at (510) 495-0448, or via email at
