Readers Split on Picking the Next St. Louis Police Chief

December 20, 2017 Featured No Comments

The recent non-scientoifoc Sunday Poll asked readers to pick from the 6 candidates for Police Chief. Answers were presented to readers in random order, but here they are in the order listed by the Post-Dispatch:

Q: Which of the six finalists to become the next Chief of the St. Louis Police would you hire?

  • Lawrence O’Toole, St. Louis (Interim Chief) 4 [18.18%]
  • John Hayden, St. Louis 3 [13.64%]
  • Mary Edwards-Fears, St. Louis 6 [27.27%]
  • Stephen Max Geron, Dallas TX 1 [4.55%]
  • Keith L. Humphrey, Norman OK 2 [9.09%]
  • Patrick Melvin, Port Arthur TX 0 [0%]
  • Unsure/No Answer 6 [27.27%]

Again, this is non-scientific and the vote total was low.

The office of Chief of Police as it looked durimg the open house for the new police headquarters.

Part of me thinks bringing in someone from another state would be healthy for the department, part of me thinks a female chief would also be healthy.
