Eugene Police Chief Selection Process – Get Involved!
The City of Eugene has entered the “Hire” phase of our Police Chief Recruitment process. We have a talented pool of applicants and plan to host finalists for the position in Eugene the week of March 12th!
Our goal is to create opportunities for community members to get to know the finalists and for the finalists to get to know our community. There will be multiple opportunities for community members to engage with this process. Visit this website for more information on community opportunities to engage.
A Community Panel is scheduled for the morning of March 13th. The purpose of this panel is to offer the opportunity to engage with candidates and contribute in the selection of the next Police Chief to a broad spectrum of the community. Selected panelists will participate in small group interviews with each finalist.
If this opportunity interests you and you’re available on March 13th from 8:00am -10:30am please submit your name, contact information and a brief statement of interest (30 words or fewer) here>>
All interested parties must submit their interest statement no later than February 28th at 9pm (DEADLINE EXTENDED) using this form>>
City Councilors, the Mayor and City Manager will make final selections of individuals who will participate in this process.
Join us for a Community Forum open to everyone and viewable through webcast! Community members who attend the forum and those viewing from home can submit questions in advance or during the forum. This interactive forum will be held on March 13th from 5:30 – 6:30 pm at Harris Hall.
You can submit questions in advance or in person at the forum to be asked of finalists. Planning to watch on the web? Submit your questions by email through 6:00 pm. All questions will be reviewed, themed and asked of finalists as time permits.

The Egan Warming Centers provide warm, safe places to sleep for people who are experiencing homelessness on nights when the temperature drops to 30 degrees or below. Tonight – Tuesday, December 12 – will be the 9th night in a row that Egan has activated. The Centers rely heavily on volunteers, so long activations can make it challenging to maintain adequate staffing and ensure that the Centers can stay open. There are different roles to fill, from kitchen crew and safety to general staffing support and helping with donations. A New Volunteer Orientation & Training will take place next Tuesday, December 19, at 6 pm, at First Christian Church, 1166 Oak St. More information can be found at www.eganwarmingcenter.com.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
