Cincinnati's city manager has selected the four finalists to be the ity's next police chief.
- Interim Police Chief Teresa Theetge

“I have complete faith the best person to fill the role of Cincinnati Police Chief is within this group of established, respected law enforcement members," says City Manager Sheryl Long in a release. "These finalists exemplify the qualities needed to lead our nationally recognized, innovative police department. Our city faces real challenges with police recruitment and retention. We need strong leadership and a chief with a deep understanding of the collaborative agreement and community problem-oriented policing."
Long says the finalists have been through "extensive internal interviews."
