    Well, here's your answer:

    New Police Chief Chosen for Maine's Largest City

    A commanding officer with the Los Angeles Police Department has been chosen to head the Portland Police Department. City Manager Joe Gray today announced that he's recommended Captain James Craig for the post.

    Craig is a 28-year veteran of the LAPD, and he is currently the Area Commanding Officer of the West Los Angeles Area, where he holds the rank of Police Captain III. Craig is originally from Detroit, Michigan, where he served on the police force for four years. He plans to move to the Portland area with his wife and daughter if Gray's recommendation is approved by the Portland City Council, which is expected to take it up March 2. If Craig is confirmed, he plans to start with the Department May 4.

        Don't think he was ever going to go much higher at LAPD.

        He's too tied to former Chief Bernie Parks.

            Kieth,

            Im very impressed that you remembered a dead thread from a State you are not living in. How did you do it? Do you have ties to Maine?

                I was just going through state forums...focusing on the ones with no activity, and wondering why.

                  Parks is a punk. Bratton just passed this new code-3 special order, which was pretty sweet. It eliminated "officer needs assistance and basically allowed for for multiple units to respond code-3 units to code-3 calls, back-ups, help calls, and pursuits. Well, D-bag parks and some other hooligan basically trumped it and no we are back to where we were.
