Rapid City Council Confirms New Police Chief

Rapid City Council Confirms New Police Chief
RAPID CITY, SD -

The Rapid City Council has approved a new police chief, a week after rejecting the mayor's first choice for the job.

The council on Monday unanimously made Interim Chief Karl Jegeris the permanent replacement for Steve Allender, who recently retired as chief after three decades in law enforcement.

The council last week rejected Lt. Elias Diaz for the chief's job, citing a lack of experience, a flawed selection process and a lack of overall transparency on behalf of Mayor Sam Kooiker in choosing who he felt was the right candidate.

Jegeris says his swift confirmation should end what he calls a "slight distraction." Kooiker says he's also glad to be moving forward.

The Rapid City chief oversees a staff of 153 full-time employees, including 119 officers.
