Clearwater Police Chief Dan Slaughter will become an Assistant City Manager, City Manager Jennifer Poirrier decided Friday.
Slaughter will serve under Poirrier, who was elevated to City Manager in January after the high profile firing of former city manager Jon Jennings.
“I think he’s a good fit because of his proven leadership as it relates to operational issues, commitment to the community and his strong values that have been proven as it relates to accountability and integrity,” Poirrier told the Tampa Bay Times.
A start date hasn’t been determined as Slaughter finalizes his retirement plans from the Clearwater Police Department.
