Process started to hire new Rapid City police chief


by Jack Siebold, MyTown Editor

Now that Rapid City Police Chief Steve Allender announced his retirement, the question pops up as to who his successor will be.

That, according to Mayor Sam Kooiker, won't be decided for a couple of weeks.  Kooiker says the position is being advertised now through April 23 and includes internal as well as external candidates.

In a memo to the police department, the mayor said:  "My record on department director appointments shows my commitment to selecting highly qualified individuals with strong ties to the community.  I understand the value of promoting from within."
