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: https://www.eugene-or.gov/3834/Community-Opportunities
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.
