23 people apply to be next CPD superintendent

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Police Board has received applications from 23 people who want to become the city’s next police superintendent, officials said Monday.

Applications for post were sent in by job seekers from across the nation as well as locally, said board president Ghian Foreman. There was a Monday deadline for the submission of applications, and Foreman said the board will review them, with a “select number” brought in for interviews in coming weeks.

“This search is a priority for the board and the city as a whole, and we plan to complete an initial round of interviews by the end of this month,” Foreman said. The board will submit three candidates to Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot to consider for superintendent.

The superintendent post became vacant in December when Lightfoot fired Eddie Johnson. She said Johnson lied about an October drinking-and-driving incident. Former Los Angeles police chief Charlie Beck is serving as interim Chicago police superintendent until a permanent replacement is picked.
