A decade of success in Richmond, CA

This article reviews the 10-year term of Chris Magnus as police chief in Richmond, California. A transplant from Michigan and North Dakota, he was able to reduce officer-involved shootings, improve accountability, increase community policing, and generally transform what had been a troubled department. Magnus recently accepted a new position as chief in Tucson, Arizona.

    We need more examples of successful and sustained police leadership. I would like to see a national summit highlighting theses successes and the lessons learned. Can we do this?

      I sent a note to Chuck. They think they did this already by having some chief’s share leadership stories — but there’s a bid difference between status who and reform leadership. Will COPS still exist?
