Mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler announced Monday afternoon that Danielle Outlaw, currently deputy police chief in Oakland, Calif., will be the next Portland police chief.

Wheeler chose Outlaw to replace Chief Mike Marshman, who held the position since June 2016.

She will become the first black woman to serve as police chief in Portland history when she resumes office no later than Oct. 2.

Wheeler said, “I have concrete goals for the Portland Police Bureau, all of them challenging to achieve. I need a partner. I need a leader. More than that, I need someone with a passion for this work who will be in it for the long haul. Danielle Outlaw is that person.”

She is a 19-year-veteran of the Oakland Police Department and stood out the most amongst 33 candidates.
