Substantial Number of Candidates Applying to be Ypsilanti Deputy Police Chief

Ypsilanti officials say they have received a substantial number of applications to be the next deputy police chief. 

Applications for the position will be accepted through the end of the week. 

City Manager Ralph Lange says while chief Tony DeGiusti will be the face of the department in the community, the deputy chief has a big role as well.  He says the deputy police chief is responsible for the operations of the department and putting in place the policies and procedures the chief develops with the community.

DeGiusti was hired as deputy chief about a year ago but has now become Ypsilanti's police chief.  Lange says he and DeGiusti will review the applications and conduct one or two rounds of interviews, with a hire expected within 60 days.

WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports on the search for Ypsilanti's next deputy police chief.
