We’ve had our eye out for changes at the new combined 12th and 13th District police district for some time now, watching cop blogs and email for news on what might come down there. But when the news came down this week, we were surprised to see a change at downtown’s 1st District, as well.

Commander Chris Kennedy has been superb in his leadership atop the 1st District, and he will be missed by many. He’s calm, forthright and honest.

He deserves what appears to be a promotion to head the department’s gang unit, where he’ll certainly be under heavy scrutiny. A commenter from cop blog Second City Cop speculated the move could be setting Kennedy up heir apparent to the city’s top post.

Sounds good to us.
