Community surveys party of Wichita police chief search

By Tammara Fogle | June 30, 2022

You can have a say in who’s chosen as Wichita’s next police chief.

The city of Wichita is seeking input from the community as part of the search and selection process for the next chief. The community stakeholder survey is available in English and Spanish at A stakeholder survey for Wichita Police Department officers and staff will be distributed internally.

The surveys may also be accessed here: – (English) (Spanish)

A consulting firm will collect, collate and review the stakeholder feedback to support the creation and development of a profile for the chief’s position, which may also be used to better inform the selection process.

Once the position profile is final, PSSC will post an official job listing and begin recruitment efforts. The review committee will review applicants and recommend semifinalist candidates for interview. After interviews are completed, the review committee will advise the city manager on final candidates for consideration, further interviews and final approval.

The search process is anticipated to be complete by fall 2022.
