Metro Council to hold community forums about next LMPD chief


Some Louisville Metro Council members are giving the community a chance to weigh in on the search for the next chief of the Louisville Metro Police Department.

The current chief, Robert White, is leaving Louisville to become chief in Denver.

On Thursday, December 1, residents in Metro Council Districts 1 through 6 can all give input on the hiring process.

District 2 residents will meet at 6 p.m. at the Newburg Community Center. Residents in Districts 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 will meet at the NIA Center at 2900 West Broadway at the same time.

Mayor Greg Fischer's office said an interim chief is expected to be announced early next week.
