Police Chief Recruitment Process

The City of Grand Junction has launched a national search for a new Chief of Police. As the first step in the recruitment process, the public is invited to provide input about the qualifications and qualities they would like to see in the next Grand Junction Chief of Police during a listening session on October 11, 2022, from 5:30 – 7 p.m. in the City Fire Department Training Room at 625 Ute Avenue.

“We are committed to an open and inclusive process of recruiting and hiring the next Chief of Police for the City of Grand Junction,” stated Greg Caton, City Manager. “We encourage everyone who wants to provide input to join us for the listening session or complete the brief survey online. Over the course of our national search, we will have additional opportunities for community participation as we complete the process of finding the most qualified individual to lead our department of dedicated law enforcement professionals,” Caton continued.

In addition to the listening session, community members can provide input online by completing a brief survey. The survey will remain open until Friday, October 21, 2022. In addition to community input, the hiring process will include an assessment as well as interviews and meetings with department personnel, community members, law enforcement professionals, and city leadership. The process is expected to take four to six months.
