Dayton’s Finest: Officer Leatha Savage, Detective Carol Johnson and Sergeant Kimberly Hill were on hand at Minneapolis City Hall last Tuesday to congratulate their former boss William McManus, who was being sworn in as Minneapolis’ new Chief of Police. Dayton’s Finest: Officer Leatha Savage, Detective Carol Johnson and Sergeant Kimberly Hill were on hand at Minneapolis City Hall last Tuesday to congratulate their former boss William McManus, who was being sworn in as Minneapolis’ new Chief of Police. Could it be a sign of things to come for Minneapolis? He replaces outgoing Chief Robert Olson. McManus, Dayton’s police chief for the past two years, rose through the ranks to become one of Washington, D.C.’s deputy chiefs before taking the job in Dayton. His tenure in Dayton was marred by some hostility from that city’s police union, which, in part reflected resistance to McManus’ elevating some officers of color to top management positions in the Dayton Police Department.
