More community engagement, transparency among new police chief’s plans

"The street crimes unit is good on a lot of different levels," Taylor said. "You can target them for any specific crime problems, they are flexible."

"My policy on use of force is that we use only the absolute force that is necessary to affect our lawful objectives," Taylor said. "After that we will restore the dignity and respect."

Since March, interim chief Kenneth Bundrick had helmed the department. Along with Taylor, Bundrick was among the top four finalists for the position.

In a previous interview, Bundrick said that he would remain with the department and planned to support the new chief.
