Interim City Manager Michael Dolder will meet with the City Council to discuss Chief O’Keefe’s replacement. 

Chief O’Keefe said “I’m honored to have been selected for this important position and wish to thank Senator Feinstein for her recommendation and President Obama for nominating me.” 

In a press release, Chief O’Keefe said that he is particularly proud of the accomplishments his department has made in the areas of community policing, emergency preparedness, and programs, such as the Police Activities League (PAL).
