With City of Rock Hill Police Chief John Gregory retiring December 1, city officials Friday announced several opportunities for the public to offer their input in the search.

City spokeswoman Katie Quinn says a public survey is available online at that aims at gaining perspective about valuable traits as a Police Chief, issues for priority and questions that may be considered in the interview process.

Quinn also said the city will hold two public forums seeking input on the next Police Chief – one on Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m. at the city’s Operations Center, and another on Nov. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.

A third input session ill be held Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m. for police department employees.

Applications will continue to be accepted throughout this process, until a suitable candidate is found.
