“Chief Arradondo was recently notified of being chosen as a final candidate for the City of San Jose, California’s Chief of Police search. While humbled and honored to be considered, Chief Arradondo wishes to thank San Jose city officials, the recruitment firm and mostly the people of San Jose for the kind and gracious invitation to participate in their upcoming process. However as Chief Arradondo indicated upon the information being made public, he remains committed to our city’s public safety and work to enact transformational change here in Minneapolis. Chief Arradondo at this time has respectfully requested to have his name withdrawn from consideration for the San Jose Chief search process.
“He wishes the City of San Jose and the SJPD the best as they select their next Chief of Police.
-John Elder, Director of Police Information
