Police Chief Search

Tulsa, OK – The deadline was Friday at five.

By that time two of Tulsa's three Deputy Police Chiefs filed for the Tulsa Police Chief's job. Daryl Webster and Mark McCrory both put in applications for the position. The job became open when Police Chief Ron Palmer's resignation was accepted by Mayor Bartlett.

Under the city charter, the Mayor must consider internal candidates before expanding the search outside the department. The Deputy Chiefs accused the Mayor's chief of staff of misleading the city council over use of a federal grant regarding laid-off officers.

Interim Police Chief Chuck Jordan says he will filed for the post when and if it reaches the external candidate search.
