Interim Police Chief Taking Over Before New Mayor is Sworn In

Assistant Chief Dave DeKay will be taking the reins of the St. Petersburg Police Department a couple of weeks before Rick Kriseman is sworn in as St. Petersburg's new Mayor.

In what is a fairly typical transition process, current Chief Chuck Harmon's last official day is scheduled for December 18, 2013 and Assistant Chief DeKay will be acting Chief beginning December 19, 2013  until the new Mayor is sworn in January 2, 2014 at which point it is assumed he will be named interim Police Chief.  

Chief Harmon will be using annual leave until his official retirement day January 6, 2014.

Retirement at the City of St. Petersburg is a fairly straight forward process, but it does require some time and some serious personal decision making. Given the holidays and City schedule, the timing seems appropriate.
