LAPD Spokesman Andrew Smith Offered Police Chief’s Post in Wisconsin
Los Angeles police Cmdr. Andrew Smith, a 27-year department veteran who spent the last five as the LAPD’s top spokesman, has been offered a new job: police chief of Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The Green Bay Police and Fire Commission announced Tuesday that Smith has been offered the position — a day after meeting with him and two other finalists. One of the candidates was a Green Bay captain, the other an acting chief in a small Wisconsin town.
“I am excited to bring Chief Smith in to lead the talented men and women of the Green Bay Police Department,” Mayor Jim Schmitt said in a statement.
The commission said in a statement that the job offer was “conditional upon Mr. Smith satisfying certain pre-employment requirements.”
