Candidate for WPD Chief on police brutality


Duluth Police Chief Gordon Ramsay is one of two finalists for the position of Chief at the Wichita Police Department. In 2012, the Duluth Police made national news, when an officer was caught on camera beating a suspect in a detox cell.

According to the CNN article, an independent counsel was appointed to investigate the charges, and the officer was ultimately arrested. The police department made contact with the victim in that case to assure him that the situation was being taken seriously.

The department also admitted that the officer had been accused of brutality in prior incidents.

This is in stark contrast to the way the Wichita Police Department currently handles crimes committed by members of the police force, opting to investigate their own officers, and then placing those investigations into a confidential file.

Irving, Texas Assistant Chief Jeffery Spivey is also in the running for the position in Wichita. Both candidates will be available to take questions from the public at a forum on December 14, 2015, at 6:00 pm, at Century II
