The New Orleans Mayor has found her next Police Chief from inside the department. 

Commander Shaun Ferguson will lead the police department when Police Superintendent Michael Harrison departs.

Mayor Cantrell’s choice comes after Harrison announced his retirement last week so he could become Baltimore’s next Police Commissioner.

Cantrell had said she would choose an insider, without forming a search committee and that it would be someone local.
