The search process for hiring a new Police Commissioner in the City of Cambridge is underway. City Manager Louis A. DePasquale has hired the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), a Washington, DC based non-profit that over the past decade has assisted with more than 75 executive searches, to assist with the development of the leadership profile, the recruitment of highly qualified candidates, and the applicant screening process.
The public is invited to assist the City with the development of the leadership profile for the Police Commissioner search. Members of the public may participate in the process by attending one of the Citywide Public Forums or by providing written feedback.
Two Citywide Public Forums, facilitated by PERF, are being held on:
•Thursday, March 2, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the School Committee Room, CRLS, 459 Broadway.
•Saturday, March 4, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at the Citywide Senior Center, 806 Mass. Ave.
During these sessions, the public will be asked to discuss:
•What are the leadership qualities that you want the Cambridge Police Commissioner to possess?
•What are the challenges and opportunities that the next Police Commissioner will need to address?
Members of the public can send their written comments on these key questions, along with other any other relevant feedback, directly to PERF by emailing Cambridgecomments@policeforum.org.
