The City of Elk Grove invites the community to a meeting next Tuesday, May 21, to explore and discuss the qualities and characteristics most wanted in Elk Grove’s next Chief of Police.

The City has contracted with Ralph Andersen & Associates, a public sector executive search firm based in Rocklin, to lead the search effort. Retired Police Chief Greg Nelson, Vice President of Ralph Andersen & Associates, will be leading the search. Chief Nelson has conducted many Police Chief searches in California and across the country.

The purpose of this meeting will be to thoroughly explain the search process to the community and solicit input to help define the attributes of the ideal candidate. This will be an important part of developing a candidate profile that will be used to recruit, screen, and select candidates. An online survey will be offered for those unable to attend the meeting or desiring an alternative means of participation later in the recruitment process.

WHAT:          Community Meeting: Chief of Police Recruitment

WHEN:           Tuesday, May 21, 6:00 p.m.

WHERE:         Elk Grove City Hall Council Chambers, 8400 Laguna Palms Way
