Reality check - Like every other big city Chief , he is apointed by , and serves at the pleasure of the City Council. Following the will of the ( governing body in power ) on certain key issues is a litmus test .

If they weren't smart enough to know what was expected of them , they wouldn't have made the short list, or probably the long list . If they start to go rogue , they get a quick talking to , and reminded how many others would walk to be the next chief. Several Chiefs ago , one made a mildly ( less than anti ) statement, Once . The next day he had another news confrence to announce he mispoke , and didn't really mean what he said , and Policy remains what it was .

( Most Sheriffs are only slightly better off . While true they can't easily be yanked out of office during their term , most of them are dependent upon the support of the leadership of their party for their reelection bids . Only those who have their own , or family political dynasties outside of their nominal Party , can truely shoot from the lip with impunity .)
