Piqua Civil Service Commission Confirms Lieutenant Rick Byron as New Chief of Police

Posted on: March 7th, 2019 No Comments

 

At the City of Piqua Civil Service public meeting on Thursday, March 7, 2019 the Piqua Civil Service confirmed Lieutenant Rick Byron as the new Chief of Police. Lieutenant Byron will be sworn in following the retirement of Bruce Jamison, current Chief of Police, between now and June of 2019.

“I’m very appreciative of the integrity displayed by the Civil Service Commission, the candidates, and the city staff involved in selecting my replacement. I am proud of Lt. Byron and his hard work to achieve this promotion,” current Chief of Police, Bruce Jamison said. “The citizens of Piqua can be very confident in this selection.”

The process of choosing a new chief of police is governed by rules and regulations established by the Civil Service Commission and is administered by the Human Resources Director in coordination with an outside, impartial consultation firm. The City of Piqua’s established process includes consideration of internal candidates only, using a multi-step process. In preparation for content development a Subject Matter Expert Panel (SME) was identified which consisted of City Manager Gary Huff, Police Chief Bruce Jamison, and Human Resources Director Catherine Bogan. Based on in SME input, the consultation firm developed three assessment exercises to assess performance dimensions.

The consultation firm recruited assessors for the Civil Service Commission’s consideration in accordance with the selected criteria established by the SME panel. These criteria were based on the ideal behaviors and responses revealed through the knowledge, skills, and abilities provoked by each exercise. The consultation firm chose three Chiefs of Police from other departments located at least 50 miles outside of city limits. The Assessment Center consisted of three components: Written Exercise; Mock Press Conference; and A Mock Community Meeting.

In the final phase of the Assessment Center a community interview was conducted. Each candidate was interviewed by a panel of five: two community members, the City of Piqua Human Resources Director, Assistant City Manager, and one department head outside of the police department. All results were based on consensus scoring determined by the five-person panel.

“The process requires significant preparation from the candidates. All of our candidates demonstrated strong commitment and dedication to their individual jobs and to the citizens of Piqua during their presentation of qualification throughout this process.” Stated Catherine Bogan, Human Resources Director. “I am proud of the Piqua Police Department and this group of excellent officers in particular.”
