Ann Arbor presenting meet-and-greet with candidates for city's next police chief
Four candidates will interview to be the next Ann Arbor police chief, but first, they will have a chance to address the public tonight.
The national search produced three men and one woman, all of them hailing from outside the region:
- Nathaniel Clark has been chief at three different departments, most recently in Forest Park, Georgia.
- Marcus Dudley is currently in charge of the police department in Abilene, Texas.
- Christopher Hassig has spent his entire career in Houston where he currently serves as a commander.
- And Latesha Watson was previously the police chief in Henderson, Nevada and currently works as the office of public safety accountability director in Sacramento, California.
A meet-and-greet with all the candidates will take place at the Ann Arbor Justice Center tonight beginning at 5:30. Public interviews will take place in city council chambers on Tuesday beginning at 8 a.m.
Ann Arbor has been without a police chief since July of 2022 when Michael Cox took a job in Boston. Aimee Metzer, who was a finalist for the job until withdrawing on Tuesday, has been the interim chief since.
