Winston-Salem Assistant Police Chief Barry D. Rountree will be the city’s next police chief, City Manager Lee Garrity announced last week. Rountree, a 25-year WSPD veteran, was one of three finalists to replace Chief Scott Cunningham, who is retiring June 30.

“After careful deliberation of all aspects of the chief’s job, I have determined that Assistant Chief Rountree is the best candidate to assume this major responsibility for our community,” Garrity said.

He will be the city’s second African American chief. Patricia Norris made history when she held the job from 2004–2008.
