New chief of Spokane Police Department Was Special Agent for Justice Department Office of Inspector General
The new chief of the budget-challenged Spokane Police Department is a former special agent with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Inspector General, the Spokesman-Review reports.
Mayor David Condon selected Frank Straub to head the police department – an appointment that must receive approval from the Spokane City Council.
Straub takes over at a time when the police department has the fewest numbers of officers since the mid-1990s.
“If you really want to be innovative in policing and you really want to get things done in policing, you get much more done in a department this size than you do in an Indianapolis-size department or Chicago or New York,” Straub said at a City Hall news conference, the Spokesman-Review reported.
