John Harrington is the outgoing Chief of Police in St. Paul. He has been on the force for nearly 30 years, working his way up through the ranks. He has been Chief since 2004. The general consensus is that he has been a good Chief and I, for one, was surprised when he did not seek another term. He is an Honorary Irish Person
and I think he may have learned his policing skills at home, being the father of seven.
He recently announced that he is running for the vacant the State Senate seat
in District 67 as a Democrat.
This is The Chief at Metro State looking back at downtown St. Paul, a city that, I have to say, has been well served by his work in community policing and his tenure as Chief.
UPDATE: John won his bid and now represents District 67 in the Minnesota State Senate.
