The Search Begins - Finally
- The Chicago Police Board on Friday officially launched its second nationwide search for the city's new police superintendent.
As the Chicago Sun-Times reported last month, the board has hired the Police Executive Research Forum to conduct the search triggered by Mayor Daley's decision to reject all three finalists recommended by the Police Board -- insiders Charles Williams and Hiram Grau and New Yorker Thomas Belfiore -- and ordering the board to start over.
- Sources said the PERF contract took a long time to negotiate because of the thorny issue of confidentiality.
