Clarkdale re-opening police chief position
Clarkdale Town Manager Gayle Mabery plans to re-open the town's recruitment process for a police chief. According to Mabery, "Although we had a very diverse and qualified applicant pool, we had a few finalists withdraw late in the process, and I was unable to identify a candidate that I felt was the right fit for the Town of Clarkdale's needs. The police chief is a critical role for the community, and it is well worth the time to find a person who is not only experienced and qualified, but is the right fit for the community. Fortunately, our Interim Public Safety Director, John Wintersteen, has agreed to continue to serve in an interim role for another four to six months in order to provide continuity to the department and the community."
The second recruitment process for the position will begin before the end of March.
