White Not Chosen For Dallas Chief's Job

Louisville Metro Police Chief Robert White was notified Wednesday that he was not chosen to be the next chief of the Dallas Police Department.

The Dallas city manager announced that she’s hired Assistant Chief David Brown to fill the post.

White was among six finalists for the job. He’s been pursuing job openings around the country since Mayor Jerry Abramson announced he would not seek a final term this year. Abramson hired White to oversee the merger of the old city and county departments in 2003.

White says he likes his job in Louisville, but his future here is uncertain, as he could be replaced in a new administration.
