Delta city manager David Torgler last week provided an update on the search for a new police chief, at the request of councilmember Christopher Ryan. Charles Kettle has been serving as interim police chief since Robert Thomas left Delta in September 2015.

In June, Delta City Council rejected a $10,500 proposal from a professional recruiting firm and directed staff to conduct the search for Thomas's replacement.

Torgler reports that the search is proceeding, although at a slower pace than a professional recruiter would require. The next step is polling police officers, city council members and citizens to determine what attributes, background and experience the city should be looking for. That step is necessary to ensure the next police chief reflects the community's values. An active search will not begin until that process is completed. "We're making the best effort we can," Torgler reported at the Aug. 2 city council meeting.
