With Chief of Police Ivan Minsal retiring Sept. 8, Crescent City officials have named two interim replacements while the search for a permanent hire continues.
Sergeant Ed Wilson will be the active chief for the month of September and Sgt. Jennifer Owens will assume the same job for October, City Manager Eric Wier recently told the City Council.
Wier said the city’s application process will close Sept. 16.
“Then we’ll schedule interviews, probably have a couple panels conduct those interviews, and hopefully have a final selection made mid to late October, depending on the candidate and their background investigation requirements,” Wier said.
The new chief could be in position as early as November, said Wier, or as late as December or early January.
