Fort Worth is considering six finalists for its new police chief. The position, open since Jeff Halstead’s January departure, will require a candidate who is dynamic enough to face outstanding controversies, including a traffic ticket scandal and racial tensions within the department. The new chief will also need to contend with the challenges facing police departments across the country, including poor community relations resulting from several officer-related deaths and retaliatory acts by civilians. The six candidates have varied backgrounds and experience. What sort of professional and personal background would make you comfortable with the city’s selection? Send no more than 150 words with your name, address and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is Wednesday.
