Murfreesboro City Manager Names Karl Durr Chief of Police


Durr-Murfreesboro Chief of PoliceMurfreesboro City Manager Rob Lyons named James “Karl” Durr as the new Chief of Police, replacing retired Chief Glenn Chrisman. Durr, Assistant Chief for the Eugene Police Department in Oregon, was the top pick of more than 69 applicants and three finalists who underwent structured interviews by a Staff and Community Panel along with the City Manager. The finalists in the nationwide recruitment process were also evaluated by an assessment center conducted by the University of Tennessee Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS).

Durr is expected to begin his new role in April.

“During his lengthy law enforcement career, Chief Durr has exemplified leadership, professionalism and passion for the safety of the communities he serves,” said City Manager Rob Lyons. “Everyone who associated with Chief Chrisman during his successful career knows that he will be difficult to replace, but in my judgement Chief Durr has the level of experience, education and leadership required for the future of our growing community.”

Assistant Chief Durr brings great experience and education to the Murfreesboro Police Chief’s office. He has been a law enforcement officer for almost 32 years. He most recently served as assistant chief in Eugene, where he had oversight of Investigations, Operations Support, Technical Services, Internal Affairs, and Training for a department comprised of 185 sworn and 119 civilian personnel.
