Golden Valley City Manager Tim Cruikshank announced March 14, 2022 that Police Operations Commander Alice White will serve as the City’s acting police chief until Virgil Green takes the helm as police chief in six to eight weeks, pending completion of the City’s pre-employment requirements.
White joined the Golden Valley Police Department Oct 4, 2021. She had previously served with the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) from 2004-2021 as a patrol officer and trainer of its Procedural Justice Program.
