Selvain McQueen Named Chief of Police

Interim Chief of Police Selvain Mcqueen will be Columbus’ newest Police Chief.
In a 4-2 vote, members of the city council voted to hire McQueen at Monday night’s special meeting.
Ward 5 Councilman Kabir Karriem made the motion to hire McQueen with Ward 2 Councilman Joseph Mickens seconding the motion.
Once the motion was called to a vote the decision appeared to be split along racial lines.
Councilmen Karriem, Mickens, Ward 1 Councilman Gene Taylor and Ward 4 Councilman Fred Stewart, all four of whom are African American, voted to hire the interim chief, who is also African American. Ward 3 Councilman Charlie Box and Ward 6 Councilman Bill Gavin, both of whom are Caucasian, did not.
McQueen was one of three finalists for the position.
Curtis Brame of North Chicago, Ill. and Robert Spinks of Sequim, Wash., also competed for the position. All three men participated in an interview process that was held Thursday evening.
During Thursday’s interview, McQueen compared his love for the citizens of Columbus to a mother’s love for her new born baby saying “I refuse to allow the citizens of Columbus to fall into the hands of someone I do not know. I love this city and I feel I have a rapport with the citizens of Columbus.”
When asked how it felt to be the newest chief, McQueen replied “I really haven’t had time to stop to think about it. Honestly, I’ve been so busy working. What I want the people of Columbus to know is that they have a professional, competent police force. When they see a police officer out, please thank them for doing their jobs-because it’s not an easy one. It’s a thankless job. I wish some of the churches would invite us to church, we’ll be happy to come. I would love to visit some of the churches by invitation. Our officers would love to come and worship. We’re out there, we’re arresting people, we’re back in dark corridors at nighttime, facing people that are carrying guns and knives, being spit on and cursed at, we have been called everything but a child of God. Invite us to church, we’ll be happy to come.”
McQueen also stressed the importance of the relationship between officers and the citizens of Columbus saying, “This is a joint effort. The officer that you just called to your house because your daughter is out past curfew may have just been spit on, hit in the eye or shot at. We’re human too. How many people have said, ‘Hey Mr. Officer, how has your day been so far?’ But we’re professional and it’s our job to be able to turn that switch on and off. I would love for people within the general public to start respecting officers too. We’re going to give a much greater degree of respect, I’m expecting that in return. It’s not easy out there, and whoever does not believe it, I invite them to join the Citizens Police Academy and they’ll see a different side”
McQueen has been with the department for 24 years. He was appointed as Interim Chief of Police when Joseph St. John was fired in July. Before becoming interim, McQueen was head of the department’s Criminal Investigations Division.
McQueen will begin serving as chief immediately.

    I’m HAPPY for Chief McQueen!! It’s about time they hire from within. I’ll continue to PRAY that GOD will give him the strength he needs and the safety of all the members of the police department. I too am a police officer in Northern Virginia, 17 yrs, born and raised in the area, graduate in 85 from Caledonia. Again CONGRATS Chief and GOD Bless!! Mike “Tony”

    ya right, he wants all this to happen but in order to get respect you have to give respect to us. i wish he was not the chief cause now he can do his dirty work and cover it up alot easer then before. and why does someone have to invite you to church, i thought Gods doors was open to the public. lets see just how columbus changes now with the worst crook on the force there is as chief now. look out drug dealers, drug users, females on 7th ave selling there bodies, and all married men watch your wife if she is pretty cause the crook is on the lose now. and the dealers dont have nothing to worry cause he is gonna turn his head and look the other way like he has before in the past. yall walk up and pat this man on the back now cause your only gonna get a slap on the wrist and i dont mean with cuffs either.
