Boise begins search for new Police Chief

Mayor Lauren McLean named Ron Winegar Interim Police Chief asking him to work with city leadership, command staff, and union members to oversee the Boise Police Department.

Winegar, a 27-year veteran of the department, will focus on filling vacancies and ensuring smooth operations during the search for a permanent police chief.

Winegar was named Acting Chief upon Ryan Lee’s resignation. Lee officially separated with the city last week.

The search for a permanent chief will start immediately with the selection of a recruiting firm. The process will rely heavily on partnership with the city council, union members, community leaders, and residents and may take up to a year.
