Pittsburgh Police Chief
People packed the Pentecostal Church in East Liberty Monday night to meet with the new Pittsburgh Police chief, Cameron McLay.
Pittsburgh City Council heard from the public on Wednesday about the search for the city’s next police chief. And most people said that Mayor Luke Ravenstahl should not be the one choosing.
Former Chief Nate Harper has not been seen or heard from since he was dismissed by Mayor Luke Ravenstahl two weeks ago — but the bureau continues to reel in the wake of federal investigation.
Despite media reports, Pittsburgh Police officials say Chief Nate Harper is not on a leave of absence. The fact that he hasn’t been in the office this week, and is being investigated by a federal grand jury, has been fueling speculation.
