Wilmington Police Department
Chief of Police
The City of Wilmington is seeking a proven leader who can instill the trust and confidence of the community and police officers as the city's Police Chief. The successful candidate will be committed to using data-driven policing strategies and applying the principles of community policing to reduce crime and deliver a high level of police services to the residents of Wilmington.
With a population of 71,000 covering an area of 11 square miles, Wilmington is the largest city in Delaware. Located approximately midway between Washington and New York City and 27 miles from Philadelphia, Wilmington is centrally located on the I-95 Northeast corridor. Wilmington is often referred to as the "corporate capital of the world," with more than half of Fortune 500 companies calling Wilmington their corporate home. Wilmington's population is culturally and economically diverse. The city's newly elected leadership is committed to taking a holistic approach to strengthening neighborhoods while addressing the challenges of violent crime that impact perceptions of public safety in the city.
Wilmington has experienced a rebirth of the city's 1.3 mile waterfront, as evidenced by comprehensive, mixed-use development. Revitalization efforts have created a downtown area that combines high-rise corporate headquarters with centuries-old historic architecture. The legacy of the DuPont family can be experienced by visiting the area's many internationally acclaimed museums and venues.
The City is governed by a mayor and 13-member city council. Newly elected Mayor Mike Purzycki begins a 4-year term in early January 2017. The police chief reports directly to the Mayor through the Mayor's Chief of Staff.
The Wilmington Department of Police (http://ci.wilmington.de.us/government/city-departments/department-of-police) is the largest urban police agency in the State of Delaware, with an authorized strength of 320 sworn and 70 non-sworn positions and a budget of $54 million. It recently joined the ranks of 350 other departments nationwide in achieving operations accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.
In early 2015, Governor Jack Markell and the Delaware General Assembly called for a rapid, fact-based, intensive examination of public safety strategies for Wilmington. The findings are reported in the Wilmington Public Safety Strategies Commission Final Report (https://www.policefoundation.org/wilmington-public-safety-strategies-commission-final-report/) which combines information regarding crime data and public safety practices with recommendations regarding crime reduction strategies, general police operations and community engagement. In addition to providing a roadmap to implement successful and sustainable practices to improve public safety, the report addresses the need to commit adequate resources and support for partnerships necessary to reverse unfavorable trends. The Department has been focused on more efficiently managing and implementing violence reduction strategies, data analysis tactics, and community policing efforts.
Wilmington is one of the five cities initially engaged in the Violence Reduction Network (VRN), the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)'s approach to support and enhance local violence reduction efforts. This data-driven, evidence-based initiative provides delivery of strategic, intensive training and technical assistance to combat violent crime.
The Chief of Police must possess:
The position requires a four-year college degree, progressively responsible command-level experience in policing in an urban community, and knowledge of best practices in policing. A graduate-level degree is strongly preferred, as is additional specialized leadership education, such as the Senior Management Institute for Police (SMIP), FBI National Academy, or the Southern Police Institute. An equivalent combination of experience and training that provides the required knowledge, skills and abilities will be taken into consideration. Once appointed, the Police Chief must obtain Delaware POST certification, and must reside in Wilmington's city limits within six months of appointment. The Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) is assisting the city in the selection process. To discuss this position, contact Charlotte Lansinger at 301-639-3020 or email WilmingtonPC@policeforum.org.
Salary range will be determined based upon experience.
Qualified candidates should apply by February 6, 2017 with cover letter, résumé and a list of five references in confidence to:
