We want to congratulate Capt. Alfonso Morales on his selection as interim police chief. We stand ready to work with him to move forward as a united community for the good of all residents.

We also want to commend the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners for conducting an open and inclusive process for choosing even an interim chief. Its willingness to reach out and work collaboratively bodes well for the future.

The Board had a very difficult choice between two highly-qualified candidates and it is for the further good of the community that Inspector Michael Brunson will be remaining with the department to assist Interim Chief Morales with the difficult work ahead.
