|Miami Beach Asst. Police|
Chief Raymond Martinez
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.
