New Phoenix police chief to be sworn in Monday

Phoenix’s new police chief will be sworn in at Phoenix City Hall on Monday.

A city of Phoenix news release says that Garcia strongly believes in community-based policing by encouraging strong communication between the public and officers.

Mayor Greg Stanton, city council members and City Manager David Cavazos are expected to attend the 1:30 p.m. ceremony.

The honor guard from Phoenix police and fire will do the presentation of colors.
