Community Surveys Launch for WPD Chief Search

Contact: City Communications |

​The City of Wichita, in partnership with Public Sector Search & Consulting (PSSC), is seeking input from the community as part of the search and selection process for the next Chief of the Wichita Police Department (WPD). The community stakeholder survey is available in English and Spanish at A stakeholder survey for WPD officers and staff will be distributed internally.

The surveys may also be accessed here:

PSSC will collect, collate and review the stakeholder feedback to support the creation and development of a WPD Chief of Police Position Profile, which may also be used to better inform the selection process.

Once the WPD Chief of Police position profile is final, PSSC will post an official job listing and begin recruitment efforts. The review committee will review applicants and recommend semifinalist candidates for interview. After interviews are completed, the review committee will advise the City Manager on final candidates for consideration, further interviews and final approval.

The search process is anticipated to be complete by fall 2022.
