The workshop will be held at the South Pasadena Senior Center, 1102 Oxley Street, starting at 7 p.m., on the heels of the first one last Saturday morning at the library community room.

In addition to the workshops, the City has launched an online survey to gather community input. Residents are invited to participate in the short survey at the following link:

“We are very interested in hearing feedback from our residents on the skills, values, leadership qualities, and other characteristics they want to see in the next police chief,” said City Manager Stephanie DeWolfe. “We will also gather input on what top priorities the new chief should address.”

Community input gathered at the public meetings and online survey will be used to guide the recruitment and ultimate selection of the new chief, DeWolfe said, noting the City of South Pasadena will launch its recruitment immediately following the November 13 workshop and expects to have the new Chief named in February.

South Pasadena is recruiting a new police chief to succeed Art Miller, who left in August to become chief of police in Peoria, Arizona.
