ONN – Mayor Libby Schaaf confirmed that LeRonne Armstrong is the new Oakland police chief.


In a video tweet, Schaaf said she was very excited to have Armstrong on board.

She called Armstrong “a mentor” and “a leader.”

Answering her on the produced video, Armstrong said that’s what he plans to bring to the job and as someone who is “grounded in Oakland.”

Armstrong beat out three other candidates, including his wife, Drennon Lindsey, who has been acting as interim deputy chief. She will remain in that role overseeing investigations.

John Burris, a civil rights attorney who has sued the department many times, said Armstrong is a good choice.

“One of the reasons we like this appointment is that he knows the issues, from my point of view, knowing these issues allows him not to have a steep learning curve,” Burris said. “He can hit the place running from Day 1.”

Armstrong replaces Anne Kirkpatrick, who was fired by the Police Commission last year, with approval by Schaaf.

Stay tuned.
