A Statement from Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich on his Departure

"I am beyond thankful to Mayor Peduto for providing me the opportunity to return to Pittsburgh as the Director of Public Safety. In my tenure over the past six years, I've learned that a leader is only as good as the people working for them. I thank every member in the Department for their hard work.

We've seen lots of change, and even trying times together; and hopefully we were able to make a positive difference over these past six years. It has been my privilege to serve the City and help work towards a safer Pittsburgh for everyone." 

-Wendell Hissrich, Public Safety Director 

As of now, he says he has no current plans to announce regarding the future.
