Golden Valley Extends Conditional Offer to Police Chief
The city of Golden Valley has extended a conditional offer of employment to Virgil Green to be the city’s next police chief, the city announced this week.
Green has worked in law enforcement for 38 years, mainly in Oklahoma. The offer is contingent upon background checks, which are expected to take six to eight weeks. Golden Valley hired a consultant group to help with the search.
Interim Golden Valley Police Chief Scott Nadeau made his way to the final stage of interviews, but Nadeau withdrew his candidacy last week. The move came after a tension-filled city council meeting, where the Mayor said his choice for chief was Green and several council members expressed concerns about the police department and selection process.
