Tallahassee, FL – The City of Tallahassee has just posted an ad for a new police chief.
Chief Dennis Jones retired last week just days after a shocking videotape surfaced.
It shows officers subduing 44 year old Christina West during a DUI stop. She ended up in the hospital with a broken cheekbone, bloody nose and a black eye.
The two officers involved are on paid leave while internal affairs is reviewing their use of force.
The city posted an ad for a new police chief today.
The ad says the city is looking for a chief with at least 10 years of law enforcement experience and at least six years of experience at command staff level. It lists pay as between $63,000 and $145,000 a year.
Assistant City Manager Tom Coe will be taking over as interim chief until a new police chief is hired.
Coe will be moving into TPD headquarters tomorrow.
