What Do You Want to See in Athens’ Police Chief?

Athens-Clarke County is accepting public input on what residents want to see from a new ACCPD chief.

“As we consider Police Chief candidates throughout our search process,” Williams said in a news release, “it is important to me that any member of the community has an opportunity to express their thoughts as to what are important characteristics, qualities, and priorities of the next Police Chief that we should consider during our reviews.”

Residents can fill out an online form, pick up a print form at the manager’s office in Room 301 of City Hall or at the police station on Lexington Road, or leave a verbal comment by calling 706-224-3202.

The deadline is Friday, Dec. 21.

Former chief Scott Freeman resigned under pressure in October after Manager Blaine Williams came to believe Freeman had lost the support of the department.
