Salem is recruiting for a new Police Chief, as Chief Jerry Moore of Salem Police moves on to a well-deserved retirement. We’re seeking input from the community about your priorities for Salem’s next Police Chief and qualities you would like the person to exhibit. Share your input through this https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Salem_COP_Survey by June 12 to have your input count.
We hope to have a new Chief on board in September 2020.
Chief Moore announced his formal retirement plans in November 2019. Moore has continued to serve as police chief on an interim basis since that time.
For those wondering if any retirement celebrations are happening any time soon, the City’s plans are on hold while several projects are brought to completion.
