Professor David Harris testified at Pittsburgh City Council on the selection of a new Chief of Police for the city.  Former Chief Nathan Harper resigned recently over corruption allegation (he has not been charged).  Professor Harris said that the selection should not be made until the next mayor takes office.  The new chief should be a person of the highest personal integrity, with significant leadership and administrative experience.  Harris also recommended the formation of a citizens advisory board to assist the mayor in the selection.
