After hotly contested election, outgoing chief meeting with incoming top cop
BAKER - Police Chief Mike Knaps and chief-elect Carl Dunn have started talking about transitioning the department to its new leadership.
Dunn was elected chief of police last month. Dunn defeated Daryl Rainwater in a hotly contested runoff election.
Knaps reported to the city council recently, he and Dunn have met once and will continue to meet ahead of Dunn's swearing-in later this summer. Knaps said he understood there was some concern about he and Dunn not having spoken about department operations and the future since the election. Knaps said more meetings are planned.
