Lake City Picks White As New Chief

Lee R. White, an assistant police chief in Mesa, Arizona, has been named Coeur d’Alene’s next chief of police. He will assume the post September 2. “The biggest thing I’m planning on doing is going on a listening tour,” White said Thursday. “I want to listen to the community and to the officers and open the lines of communication and basically find out how the police department can better serve the community and the residents of Coeur d’Alene.” White was among a pool of 75 candidates from across the country who applied for the job. During his police career, he worked in or supervised nearly every area of police work, making his way through the ranks of the Mesa Police Department from patrol officer to assistant chief/Keith Erickson, Coeur d'Alene Today.

Question: What should be the first order of business for the new Coeur d'Alene police chief?
