Fort Worth Star-Telegram : Phoenix police commander picked to be Fort Worth chief:
By MIKE LEE
FORT WORTH -- Jeff Halstead, a 45-year-old police official from Phoenix, has been selected to be Fort Worth's new police chief, City Manager Dale Fisseler announced Tuesday.
Halstead is currently the commander of the Phoenix Police Department's Homeland Security Bureau.
The City Council will vote on the recommendation Nov. 11.
'This has been a tough decision because we had a number of outstanding candidates,' Fisseler said.
The city has been searching for a new chief since Ralph Mendoza retired earlier this year after a 35-year career."
