  7. Police Chief Recruitment


Applications are available at Mauldin City Hall and via our website at cityofmauldin.org. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Applications may be mailed to City of Mauldin, Attention Human Resources Director, P.O. Box 249, Mauldin, SC 29662 or e-mailed to mputnam@mauldincitysc.com.


The intent of the City’s recruitment is to conduct a broad search that will not exclude local, regional or national candidates. The job announcement will be advertised though a diverse set of periodicals to capture the interest of candidates who might not otherwise apply.   A key component of evaluating the police chief candidates is understanding the community’s expectations as it relates to the police chief and the police department.  The recruitment process will provide multiple opportunities for community engagement through a survey and community forums.

The Public Survey closed on April 28, 2021.   The results of the survey were presented during the May 3, 2021 Public Safety Committee meeting.   This information will assist in developing the job posting and advertisement materials so that candidates who may want to apply for the position understand the expectations and priorities for the community.  To review the results of the survey, click the buttons below.

On April 26, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. the City held a Community Forum to allow for members of the public to provide feedback on their expectations (e.g., leadership qualities, background experience) of the new police chief and what issues they would like the new police chief to address. You may view a video of the forum here.
