Out: John Timoney
In: Miguel Exposito
Why: Timoney resigned in November after the election of Mayor Tomas Regalado. The new mayor campaigned for new leadership, siding with the police union who cited low patrol morale. Timoney had been criticized for using an SUV from a local car dealer.
Out: Wayne Tucker
In: Tony Batts
Why: Batts takes over a department reeling from the deaths of four officers ambushed by a parolee, threatened budget cuts, and a technologically outdated crime mapping system. He oversaw a reduction in crime as the chief of the Long Beach (Calif.) Police Department.
Out: Heather Fong
In: George Gascon
Why: Mayor Gavin Newsom hired Gascon, a former LAPD deputy chief, from the Mesa (Ariz.) Police Department to modernize the department.
Out: Gil Kerlikowske
Why: Kerlikowske left in March to become the federal drug czar in the Obama Administration. Mayor-elect Mike McGinn is restarting a stalled search process put on hold by the former mayor's loss in a primary election.
Out: Steve Hogue
In: Jane Castor
Why: Hogue retired after six years as chief. Castor became the first female (and openly gay) chief in Tampa, and downplayed her trailblazing.
