Miami Beach has a new police chief

Miami Beach Asst. Police
Chief Raymond Martinez
Miami Beach City Manager Jorge Gonzalez has officially notified Miami Beach Mayor Matti Herrera Bower and the members of the City Commission of his selection and appointment of Assistant Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez as the city's next police chief.

In a letter to the commission, Gonzalez also informed the Mayor and Commissioners of his choice for Miami Beach's assistant police chief, Mark Overton, who is now Hialeah Police Chief.

Random Pixels first reported Gonzalez's selection of Martinez and Overton last Monday.

In today's letter to the commission, Gonzalez wrote that his decision to appoint Martinez "was based on who had the ability to best manage the necessary reforms in the police department. My charge memorandum to the new chief identifies both short and long term tasks that I have identified and prioritized for action."

The commission is expected to vote on Gonzalez's recommendations next Wednesday.

Embedded below is Gonzalez's letter to the commission.
