TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Toledo City Council approved $50,000 in funding to find a new police chief.

Council members voted Tuesday to award a contract to Ralph Anderson & Associates to help identify, evaluate, and screen applicants for Toledo’s next police chief. The city said the process needs to happen as expeditiously as possible because the position is vital to Toledo. The agreement can’t last longer than one year.

Chief George Kral announced in August he will be retiring in January 2023. He led the Toledo Police Department for seven years.
