Statement from Chief Jami Resch
"We are very excited to hear Assistant Chief Ryan Lee has been selected to be the next Chief of the Boise Police Department in Idaho. His contributions throughout his career with PPB have been commendable, especially in the realm of crowd management. While we will miss him at PPB, it is a tremendous opportunity for him and his family and we wish him well. This is yet one more example of the caliber of our PPB members who have been selected for major leadership roles in other parts of the Nation after a nationwide search.

"After consideration and input from the Executive Team, I have selected Commander Mike Krantz, who currently oversees Central Precinct, to be the next Assistant Chief of the Services Branch. Commander Krantz brings a good deal of knowledge and expertise to the position and I am pleased he will be joining the Executive Team.

"We will have further personnel movements in the coming months and look forward to adjusting to meet our organizational needs."

Statement from Assistant Chief Ryan Lee

"While it is an honor to be selected to be the next Chief of the Boise Police Department, it is also emotionally challenging to leave the dedicated and professional women and men of the Portland Police Bureau and the community I have served for nearly 20 years," said Assistant Chief Ryan Lee. "Being the next Chief of Police for the Boise is a tremendous opportunity to continue serving the public in a larger capacity. I am grateful for all of the friendships, opportunities, and development I have experienced as a member of the Portland Police Bureau. I look forward to sharing experiences with the Boise Police Department. My thanks goes out to all of the people, both inside and outside of the Police Bureau, who have encouraged, supported, guided, and assisted me throughout my career."
