Police chief search still stalled

Posted: Updated:

Savannah is still no closer to beginning a search for a new police chief.

City Manager Stephanie Cutter is handing the process at this point, and there was no discussion of the police chief search at Thursday's Savannah City Council meeting.

However, as WTOC has been reporting, a lot of changes within the police department could still be underway.

Alderman Van Johnson said personnel and legal issues are holding up the search.

"I'm sure there are significant issues that are still being vetted, and I think personally Chief Tolbert is doing a good job at identifying these issues," Johnson said. "They are not happening overnight. They will not be ended overnight. We have to keep pressing and making sure our police department is one our citizens can trust."
