SPOKANE-- The man nominated as Spokane Police Chief will not receive that title right away.
Frank Straub was announced as the new Spokane Police Chief by Mayor David Condon in August.
Frank Straub has to become a commissioned officer to hold the title of Spokane Police Chief. Until he is a commissioned officer he will be named the Director of Law Enforcement.

According to the City of Spokane, the title will allow Straub to begin work without the Chief of Police title.
Once Straub goes through the commission process his title will then be changed to Chief of Police.
