  • Hail to the new chief: Christopher Magnus
Tucson City Manager Michael Ortega has announced that he's picked Christopher Magnus, police chief of Richmond, Calif., as the city's new police chief.

The Tucson City Council will have to approve the choice at tomorrow's meeting.

Over the weekend, Dallas Deputy Chief Malik Aziz withdrew his name for consideration as police chief.

Aziz was the pick of the Tucson Police Officers Association. Magnus was the top pick of the citizens committee that interviewed candidates for the job, but some TPD officers are unhappy with him, partially because he participated in a Black Lives Matter protest in Richmond.
