Geneva Looks to Name New Police Chief in June


The City of Geneva has begun the process of recruiting its next Police Chief.

According to City Manager Amie Hendrix, applications will be accepted through the Ontario County Application portal. Qualified applicants must meet the minimum requirements outlined in the job posting, including promotional (internal) applicants, external applicants, and transfers. The City will consider appointing a candidate who is either a provisional candidate (needing to complete the Civil Service testing process) or probationary-permanent (having successfully completed the Civil Service testing process) in nature.

All application materials are due by May 13th at noon. The materials will be reviewed by the City Manager and a team composed of City and Community stakeholders. The top 3-5 applicants will be invited to participate in the interview process.

The interview process is planned to include an in-person meet and greet with City Leadership Staff and members of the Police Department and an in-person and recorded/streamed Community Forum. The Community Forum will be moderated by the City Manager who will kick-off the questions and then provide questions from the attendees. Each candidate will have up to 45 minutes to individually participate in the Community Forum. The Meet and Greet and Community Forum will be held on May 22nd. Following the conclusion of the Community Forum, the top candidates may be invited to participate in a follow-up interview with the City and Community Stakeholder team.

The successful candidate is set to be selected and appointed by the City Manager in June 2024.
