Raising the bar for public sector executive search

Special Focus Area: Executive Search – Chief of Police
Executive search for chiefs of police and other public safety professionals is a particular expertise of the firm.
Our founder, Gary Peterson, has a strong track record of success with Chief of Police searches in major cities, major universities, and both mid-sized and smaller cities. Mr. Peterson has developed strong relationships with hundreds of police leaders throughout the nation.
Our firm is sensitive to contemporary community expectations for chief of police searches. We address issues of inclusion, transparency, and community trust-building in our process. The firm is committed to a search and selection process that produces 21st-century police leaders who can manage and lead change.
Our expertise adds value because we design a selection process that challenges even the strongest candidates. At the conclusion of the selection process, our clients will know who can lead the change, manage people and engage their community.
When you have a sudden departure of a City Manager, Chief of Police, or other department head, a city or department can become dysfunctional.
At Public Sector Search & Consulting, we will support you during this transitional period by finding an experienced professional who can help stabilize your city or department. During this time, our consultants will work with your organization to conduct a search for the permanent executive.
