OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf is launching a campaign to find a new chief of police after a string of people quickly left the office.

KNTV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2bznHJd ) that on Monday Schaaf announced that city officials hope to have a permanent police chief by early 2017. She also said the city will hold 10 public forums next month and that she will select two community members to sit on the selection committee.
