Interim police chief Peter Newsham is D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s pick to lead the D.C. police force permanently, multiple sources confirm to WTOP.

Newsham had been serving as the interim chief since former chief Cathy Lanier stepped down in September.

Bowser is expected to make an official announcement at an 11 a.m. news conference Tuesday.

Newsham has been with the Metropolitan Police Department since 1989 and had been assistant chief of police since 2002 before being named acting chief. Lanier, who had served as D.C.’s top cop for nearly a decade, retired in September to become chief of security for the NFL.

When she named him interim chief, Bowser cited Newsham’s “deep roots serving in the District,” and said he “believes in the power of building relationships with communities as the best way to deter and solve crime.”

As interim chief, Newsham led the high-profile police response on Inauguration Day, which included a violent outburst by protesters in downtown D.C. More than 200 protesters were arrested and charged with felony rioting.

Also during his tenure, Newsham finalized a department policy for using body cameras. After an extensive pilot program, all D.C police are officers are now equipped with body-worn cameras that are required to be activated whenever they respond to a call for service or interact with the public.

He also announced plans to realign D.C. police’s special liaison division units, which serve the city’s various minority groups.

Bowser reportedly conducted a search of both internal and external candidates for the post and said a group of community stakeholders would be involved in the vetting process.

Newsham had been considered the leading candidate for the top job in a field of more than 100 candidates, The Washington Post reported Feb. 17.

The 13-member D.C. Council must confirm the pick.

Looks a tad gay, I don't care for the way he wears the uniform, and locking up niggers should be the number one priority. None of this LGBT rigarmarole.
