What kinds of qualities should Seattle's next police chief have? If you have the time to scroll through Bachelor recaps on Twitter, you have the time to fill out the city's online survey asking just that.

Some background: After plenty of rumors about a departure, Seattle police chief Kathleen O'Toole stepped down from her role in December. Deputy Chief Carmen Best—who is also vying for the new chiefdom—is serving as interim chief. Choosing the next police chief, assisted by a 25-person committee, is one of the most significant decisions Jenny Durkan will make in her first year as mayor. By May, Durkan's committee will have a list of names, and Durkan will choose the winner in June.

The city's also hosting a number of community workshops to talk about this issue throughout the month, one of which is tonight in Roxhill. Check out the full schedule here.
