BEND, OR -- Bend’s new Police Chief, Mike Krantz was on-the-job starting yesterday. Krantz spent many years with the Portland Police Bureau…a hiring that didn’t sit well with the Deschutes County D.A. John Hummel. He says the selection of Krantz comes at a time when thousands of people are protesting and demanding social justice in Central Oregon. Hummel says during the job interview with Krantz, Portland Police were tear gassing protestors and that sends a wrong message. Hummel says he called Krantz about 10 days ago and the two had a good and frank discussion. Hummel says they both agreed they can disagree with each other, but they can also, in fact, work together.
