White Not Chosen For Atlanta Chief's Post

by Rick Howlett on July 9, 2010

Louisville Metro Police Chief Robert White has been passed over for the chief’s job in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports today that the job will go to Interim Chief George Turner, a 28 year veteran of the department.

White was one of three finalists for the job.

His future in Louisville is uncertain since the city is electing a new mayor in November. Current Mayor Jerry Abramson, who hired White in 2003, is not seeking re-election to the office.

White said last month that if he did not get the Atlanta job, he would not actively seek another position until after the election.
