Police Chief, City of Sunny Isles Beach, FL (estimated population 23,869)

Sunny Isles Beach is located on a barrier island in the northeast corner of Miami-Dade County. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west and it is approximately halfway between Miami (to the south) and Fort Lauderdale (to the north). Although perhaps not as well-known as some of its neighbors, the city is a world-class destination and a highly sought after place to live, work, play, and raise a family. It is known as a high-end, walkable community and for its friendly, family-oriented, neighborly feel as well as its highly rated school, its parks, and of course, the beach. Unlike many communities, they respect and hold their police department in high regard. In short, it is the ideal place to be the police chief.

Sunny Isles Beach is committed to finding just the right person to be its Police Chief. The ideal candidate will have a few more than 100 people reporting to them and will need to be an outstanding leader as well as manager. The individual will lead by example and be the model officer possessing high integrity. They will be extremely knowledgeable of State of Florida policing policies and procedures. The individual will be someone who has done the hard work of leading people who are on the street and being a part of the community every day. At the same time, the Chief will take time to look over the horizon – to understand what is coming next.

The selected candidate will have a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice or related field supplemented by basic and advance courses in police science, leadership, and administration. They will have 10 to 15 years of law enforcement management experience or an equivalent combination of education and experience. A Master’s degree or completion of an executive leadership/management course (sponsored by a leading law enforcement education provider such
as the FBI Academy) will be a plus, as will being bilingual (Spanish or Russian) and having experience in South Florida.

The salary range is from $95,000 to $175,750. The actual salary will depend on qualifications and experience.
