Residents can weigh in on Allentown police chief search process

Published On: May 24 2013 01:18:37 PM EDT

Allentown residents will get a chance to give their input on the city's next police chief.

The city will host its first community input on the search process Thursday at 6 p.m. in City Council Chambers.

The forum will give citizens a chance to offer characteristics and issues they feel the new chief should address.

Current police chief Roger MacLean will retire at the end of the year under the terms of the deferred retirement option plan as part of the police union contract that took effect in 2009.
