Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich for Spokane Police Chief

This petition had 20 supporters

We, the citizens of the City of Spokane, would like to see Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich be the next Spokane Police Chief. There have been examples given to our Mayor, David Condon, of the Sheriff also being a City Police Chief. Mayor Condon declined that offer.Its time that we, the citizens of the City of Spokane, demand that such an arangement be enacted. The Sheriff acting as dual Sheriff/Police Chief can work, and has worked in many other metropolitan cities. There are a couple ways this could work. The city could hire Ozzie as Chief. This would keep SPD totally under the city's control, Ozzie would simply lead both the Sheriff's Office and SPD. The other way is for the city to contract with the Sheriff's Office like the City of Spokane Valley does. The other option is to form a true metro style police agency with the Sheriff as the elected head of the agency. I truly believe this is the change our city needs. Ozzie is an amazing Sheriff, and gets the job done. Our city needs someone like him! Please sign this petition to show City council and our Mayor we want Ozzie Knezovich to act as dual Sheriff/Police Chief
