Today I sent out an email message to members of the Provo Police Department announcing that Captain Rich Ferguson will fill the role as Interim Chief effective today, Monday, March 20, 2017.
Provo deserves an Interim Chief who has the leadership, service history, skills and respect of the department and our community. Appointing Captain Ferguson enables our department and city to move forward quickly. The formal announcement will take place today at 3:00 in the City Council Chamber (351 West Center Street).
I know that there are still a lot of questions regarding the resignation of Police Chief John King. I am working on another blog post to articulate the whole story and hope to get it published this week. Please stay tuned for more.
