(Arvada, CO) – The City has selected two finalists for the position of Chief of Police. They are:
- Ed Brady - current Interim Chief of Police for Arvada Police Department
- Link Strate - current Deputy Chief of Police for Arvada Police Department
A national search was conducted for the recruitment of the new chief. Out of the applications received, however, it was determined that the top two candidates are both members of the Arvada Police Department.
The finalists will attend interviews and a reception over the course of two days at the end of June. One interview panel will be made up of members of the community including volunteers, representatives on boards and commissions, and graduates from the Citizens’ Police Academy.
A public reception to meet the two finalists is scheduled for Wednesday, June 27, from 4 – 6 p.m. at Arvada City Hall.
Former Arvada Police Chief Don Wick retired in December of 2017. Since that time, Deputy Chief Ed Brady has served as Interim Chief of Police.
