A Word from Interim Chief Sean Whent
Although my appointment is interim, I pledge to own the role and assignment as if it were not . . . both for the men and women of the Police Department whom I now lead, and for the Oakland community whose safety is my personal responsibility.
I have been part of the team that has worked with national experts in the fields of crime reduction and enforcement strategies to develop a hot-off-the press plan for tackling robberies, burglaries, and shootings.
I am confident that we can implement the recommendations in that plan in short order. Together, this executive leadership team is excited to play an important role in moving the Police Department forward and enhancing the safety of this community.
