“JOB SUMMARY: This position serves as the Chief Law Enforcement Officer for the City of Brookhaven and directs the activities and operations of the Police Department, ensuring the proper and productive enforcement of laws within its jurisdiction. The Police Chief reports to the City Manager.”
The City of Brookhaven has posted a Job Opportunity on their site for a Police Chief. The full posting is below.
“Hiring the best available Chief of Police and solid personnel is vital to launching our Brookhaven police force properly. We know that under DeKalb there were times we had 3 or 4 officers inside our city area. With the deployment of the Brookhaven Police Department, studies show we can have more than double that amount of officers deployed at all times”, J Max Davis’ Website
Staffing the Police Chief position will allow Mayor Davis and the City Manager to get that ball rolling.
We did a story in January, “Early Indicators Point to Brookhaven Police Force in Summer 2013” where Mayor J Max Davis indicated a Police Force this Summer.
In addition to this job posting, City Manager, Marie Garrett, is also utilizing search firms to staff the Police Chief position.
