Just heard Dave will not be chief of police? Why he has been working hard and doing the job. Is it true?

I would guess he does the job because they pay him a lot if money to do so.

In the case of Police Chief. Get the most competent guy from within the department. Nothing destroys morale more than outside hires.

Speaking from experience sometimes what's needed is a fresh perspective; too often the wrong people are promoted to positions which exceed their capabilities because of a relationship with those in power. I'm not saying that is the case here, just don't dismiss the positive affect an external hire can have on a department.

Turner and Marynowski are telling anyone who will listen that they want to keep Draksler as chief. We don't need to know anything more to know that he is the wrong guy for the job.

I beg to differ. If Turner and Marynowski were to approve Draskler it would be the first correct decision they have made in two years.

Linus, I believe the question was why he wasn't keeping the position permanently...if you read the post.

if there is one job that you don't want to be about politics that is the police chief. It should simply be the best person with the best understanding of the city and the department that should get the job. normally that would be someone from the inside

The PD needs someone from the outside but from the area also. Nothing at all against Drax he's a good guy but the PD has needed fresh leadership blood for a long time.

Yes look what fresh blood has done for the city of Chicago. Can we say a revolving door and paying out long term contracts for the police chiefs. Let the professionals due their jobs!
