Another police chief in a US city will be replaced on Thursday as the number of police officers being asked to step down continues to rise.
I am announcing the retirement of MNPD Chief Steve Anderson. We will have a national search to find his successor. I am grateful to the Chief for his service throughout his 45-year career, and for providing continuity and a smooth transition during a national search.— Mayor John Cooper (@JohnCooper4Nash) June 18, 2020
