Columbus deputy chief to take over Cincy police dept.



Published: Fri, September 13, 2013 @ 3:44 p.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — A Columbus police deputy chief has been chosen to lead Cincinnati’s department.

Jeffrey Blackwell has more than two decades of experience as Columbus police officer. Cincinnati City Manager Milton Dohoney announced his choice today after a screening committee had narrowed the list of potential candidates from 28 to four.

Among other finalists was Paul Humphries, interim chief since June after Chief James Craig left to become Detroit’s chief.

Dohoney says Blackwell has broad experience and has been commended in Columbus for outreach to young people and immigrant populations, advancing technology use, community-based efforts to reduce crime, and cutting operating costs.

Blackwell grew up in an inner-city neighborhood in Columbus and has been an active youth mentor.

He will take over Sept. 30, heading a department of some 1,300 employees.
