Pittsburgh, PA – Mayor William Peduto announced today that the nationwide search for new Chief of Police for the City of Pittsburgh’s Bureau of Police has officially begun. The Chief of Police will report directly to newly appointed Public Safety Director, Stephen A. Bucar, in the Department of Public Safety.

The job posting and application process will be facilitated through Talent City, an initiative of the Pittsburgh Foundation designed to bring objectivity, transparency and rigorous hiring practices to identify the best available candidates for senior leadership positions.
“It is paramount that we work diligently and put in the necessary time and energy to find the right person for this position. In order to do this right, we need to receive input and insight from residents of Pittsburgh to aide in the decision making process.”

The first community voices were heard at the Mayor’s Office this morning during a round table discussion with local youth representing the Hear Me project. In conjunction with Pittsburgh based Allies for Children, Hear Me developed a youth-police relations campaign designed to create an open dialogue between the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police and young people in the city. do this right, we need to receive input and insight from residents of Pittsburgh to aide in the decision making process.”
