Manley named interim chief

Monday, November 21, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

Though we admit it’s unlikely that our tuned-in readership has not heard that Austin Police Department Chief of Staff Brian Manley will be serving as interim chief of police in place of Houston-bound Police Chief Art Acevedo effective Dec. 1, the Austin Monitor will note it nonetheless. Manley, an Austin native, has served the APD for the past 26 years, rising through the ranks. According to a press release about the appointment, “In 2012, he was promoted to Assistant Chief and served as the executive liaison to the City Manager’s Office and City Council. In 2015, he became second in command at APD when he was promoted to Chief of Staff.” In addition, Manley has taught criminal justice at St. Edward’s University as an adjunct professor as well as at the Austin Police Department Leadership Academy. On Friday, Mayor Steve Adler released a statement about the appointment, which read, “I commend the appointment of Brian Manley as Interim Police Chief. Brian Manley is a strong, knowledgeable leader. I’ve been with him many times and have seen first-hand his commitment to our community and to building relationships. He understands our challenges we face and is ready to lead. I’m confident Chief Manley will keep us safe and just.”
