Chicago Announcements August 14, 2023

Mayor Brandon Johnson on Sunday announced that Larry Snelling, chief of the Chicago Police Department's Bureau of Counterterrorism, is his pick to serve as the department's next permanent superintendent. Johnson announced his choice 30 days after the Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability sent him three finalists, including Snelling, to lead the police department. The other two finalists were Angel Novalez, who serves as the police department's chief of constitutional policing and reform, and Shon Barnes, who serves as police chief in Madison, Wisconsin. Johnson is scheduled to hold a news conference at 11:30 a.m. Monday at City Hall to formally introduce Snelling, whose appointment is pending City Council approval.
