Delrish Moss, the incoming police chief, comes from the Miami police department, Reuters reports. In his 32 years in Miami he worked patrol, undercover assignments and homicide investigations, and most recently supervised the department’s public information and community relations.
Moss will be the city’s second black chief of police, after Interim Chief Andre Anderson resigned in December.
The Justice Department released a report in 2015 detailing a pattern of racial bias in the Ferguson police force; among the statistics noted were the fact that in cases where the police department used force, 88% of the civilians involved were African Americans.
