Berks Co. Firm Hired to Assist in Police Chief Search

Lansdale officials haves approved a contract with a Berks County consulting firm that will help Borough Council select a replacement for retired Police Chief Bob McDyer.

Safe City Solutions will receive almost 14,000 for its recruitment and screening services. Council Member Jack Hansen says the consultant will conduct a nationwide search but it won’t ignore internal candidates or those from Police Departments in neighboring municipalities.

“It behooves the Borough and the citizens of the Borough for us to go through this search to make sure that we can get the best possible Chief that we can get. I know we have officers right in this area who would like to have the job. I hope they apply for it.’

Towamencin Township Police Chief Tim Dickinson is a principal in Safe City Solutions and will be part of the team that recruits candidates for the top cop job in Lansdale.
