Fort Worth police chief search narrows to six candidates

🕐 1 min read

The search for a new chief of the Fort Worth Police Department has narrowed to six candidates, according to a press release.

City Manager David Cooke has named the following individuals as candidates: Fort Worth assistant police chief Kenneth Dean; Abdul Pridgen, assistant chief over finance and personnel in the Fort Worth Police Department; San Antonio assistant police chief Jose Banales; Joel Fitzgerald, police chief in Allentown, Pa.; Anne Kirkpatrick, senior instructor in the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Leadership Development Program in Seattle; and Kirk Munden, former executive assistant police chief in Houston.

On Sept. 10, the city of Fort Worth will host a Community Forum where the candidates can meet with the public. The forum will take place at 7 p.m. at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex, 501 W. Felix St.

Before the forum, the public can submit questions for the candidates to answer via YourFortWorth.org, email or phone call. City staff will then select the questions to ask the candidates during the forum.

The city has been searching for a new police chief since Chief Jeff Halstead announced his retirement last November.
