|Salary Range Posted for Next Memphis Police Chief|
In its recruiting brochure, the city states that the salary range for the next director of police services, aka chief, will be $190,577 to $247,750. The present salary for the position, held by interim director of police services Mike Rallings, is $150,000. That itself represented a raise in pay instituted by mayor Jim Strickland earlier this year. Former chief Toney Armstrong was paid an annual salary of $126,001.46. Strickland previously had said the going rate based on other cities was about $250,000, in his estimation, and Memphis may need to raise its salary level to get the best candidate. This posting is the first time the city has published a new salary range for the job.
Memphis has retained the International Association of Chiefs of Police to manage a search for the next chief. The job was posted May 6, 2016.
