City of Boise Seeks Public's Insight for BPD Chief Search

April 15, 2024

The City of Boise is seeking the community's input in the search for a new Police Chief. Current Boise Police Chief Ron Winegar is set to retire in September.

To inform the search for a new Police Chief, the executive hiring firm Public Sector Search & Consulting, Inc., has launched an online survey for residents. This survey will provide an opportunity for residents to share their thoughts on what qualities they would like to see in the new Police Chief.

“As we work to identify the best candidate to lead our police department, we recognize the importance of understanding the priorities and expectations of our residents,” said Mayor Lauren McLean. “I’m happy that we’re beginning the search with public engagement so we can best select candidates who align with our community.”

The survey will be available from April 15 to April 29. We encourage all residents to take a few minutes to provide their valuable feedback. The insight gathered from the survey will help guide the selection process and ensure the new Police Chief aligns with Boise’s values for safety and policing.
