SPOKANE, Wash. -- It's a big day for the Spokane Police Department. Right around 9 a.m., Frank Straub will take on his duties as the new the Spokane Police Department Police Chief. Straub comes from Indianapolis where he worked as the Director of Public Safety.
His first day will include a meeting with Mayor Condon, plenty of paper work and as much face time as he can get with all his officers. We're told a big priority for him this week is simply meeting and getting to know as many people as he can.
His duties as our Police Chief will range from handling the budget to taking care of disciplinary issues.
