Miami Beach city manager Jorge Gonzalez set to name city's next police chief
Several well-placed sources are telling Random Pixels that Miami Beach city manager Jorge Gonzalez has decided his picks for the city's next police chief and assistant police chief.
Gonzalez made his selection from four finalists who were in the running for the job of top cop.
I'm told that Gonzalez will recommend to the city commission that Assistant Chief Raymond Martinez - who has been serving as acting chief for the past few months - be named chief.
Additionally, I'm told that Gonzalez plans to recommend Hialeah Police Chief Mark Overton for the job of Assistant Chief.
A source tells me that Bal Harbour Police Chief Tom Hunker - who was the choice of at least one Miami Beach commissioner - received a call today telling him that he will not be Miami Beach's next police chief.
