Eugene, Ore. - The city of Eugene is hosting eight community forums this month to talk about what type of police chief residents want.
Several city managers will be present to hear feedback at each forum. Community members will break into small groups to discuss their thoughts on what qualities they think a police chief should have, how they would write the job description, and what they like about the Eugene Police Department.
“We want to give the community ample opportunities to be a part of this process,” said Kristie Hammitt, central services executive director. “These forums are unique in that community members have a chance to meet the recruiter assisting us in this process and we can have a group discussion about what type of Police Chief Eugene wants and needs.”
A full list of the dates and locations for upcoming forums is below. All forums begin at 6 p.m. with pizza provided for attendees.
