Atlanta’s assistant police chief has been named the department’s interim leader by Mayor Andre Dickens while a permanent search continues.

Darin Schierbaum was named the Atlanta Police Department’s (APD) assistant chief in April. He is an interim replacement for Chief Rodney Bryant, who has served in the role on interim and permanent status since 2020.

Dickens said at a May 31 press conference he hopes to have a permanent police chief named by October “at the latest.”

Schierbaum is a 20-year APD veteran. He has been serving on the community advisory committee for the City’s planned public safety training center. According to his APD biography, Schierbaum is a Midtown resident who enjoys bookstores and “exploring historically significant sites in and around the city.”
