Gary Eugene has been selected to fill the position of Chief of Police of the North Miami Police Department. North Miami City Manager Larry M. Spring made the decision to appoint Eugene as Chief effective today. “While the selection process was completed internally, and all applicants had overall credentials, Chief Eugene’s experience, knowledge, and perspective on community policing stood out the most. I have full confidence that Chief Eugene will continue to move the department forward and I am pleased to be working alongside a former colleague from the City of Miami” said City Manager Larry Spring.
