The recruitment process for Tukwila’s next Chief of Police has been steadily progressing since last year, and a virtual/online Town Hall with final candidates for the position will be held this Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021.

The city said that after an extensive community outreach process, the job announcement was posted nationally at a variety of law enforcement job boards and organizations.

This week, four qualified candidates will be interviewed by two panels made up of City staff, the Council President, various representatives from the community, including leaders in the faith, business, and non-profit communities, and representatives from various City Boards and Commissions and labor partners in the Police Department.

The final two candidates will participate in a virtual Community Town Hall where they will get a chance to present to community members and answer questions. If you would like to participate in the town hall, please use the link below:
