Austin City Manager Selects New Police Chief
Congratulations to Austin’s new Chief of Police, Chief Joseph Chacon. He has been Austin’s Interim Chief during difficult times of rising crime and a police staffing crisis.
We do wish that the City Manager had considered a potential Chief from outside the department, aligning with the wishes of the police officers.
But, we hope the council will show its full support, not just for the new Chief, but for all officers going forward. We wish Chief Chacon the best of luck, and ask all Austinites to pray for him as our city faces unprecedented challenging times.
