Moss hired as fulltime Ferguson police chief
In a unanimous vote, the members of the Ferguson City Council opted to hire Police Chief David Moss on a non-interim basis during a special-called meeting Monday night.
Moss was hired as interim police chief in September, as Ferguson was under the looming shadow of a vote calling for the dissolution of the city government.
Moss had previously served as Ferguson police chief for two and a half years, and was let go shortly after former Ferguson Mayor Jim Muse took office in 2003.
Hwoever, Moss has plenty more law enforcement experience, including five years as police chief of Burnside, approximately three as a deputy with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Department, nine years with Pulaski County Government as Animal Control Officer, and two and a half years at the Pulaski County Detention Center.
Councilor Janie Ping made the motion to keep Moss on board, while Wanda Hunt seconded the motion.
While the decision to keep Moss was made within a couple of minutes, making a decision on his benefit package couldn't be concluded by meeting's end.No decision was made about Moss' salary or other benefits, and the matter was given to the police committee for further investigation.
The newly-hired police chief asked that he get a raise that would put him at the salary of the last police chief.
Moss asked that his salary be the same as the last chief of police - $27,500 annually - starting January 1, 2008, but said that he does not need his health insurance paid for, as it is already covered through his retirement.He also requested that instead of being paid overtime, he could make up the extra hours by taking time off.
"I can assure you there is a lot of court time coming up over the next couple months," said Moss, noting that because of arrests he has made he would be going to court on those cases."I'm hoping after the next couple of months that will all be over."
At the last council meeting, Moss reported that he had made five felony arrests and two misdemeanor arrests since taking over as chief.
Moss said he isn't interested in a position where the city is looking for someone to act as a security guard.He explained that a police officer is an investigator, a servant, and performs traffic stops and neighborhood watches.
However, Moss noted that even if they hire someone else at a lower salary - perhaps $23,000 or $24,000 - and then have to pay insurance, city officials would be right where they started.
"I'm not saying there's not someone else who can do it," said Moss, " (but) I feel like I'm worth just as much as the last person."
Moss also said he didn't expect sick time, but noted he is getting older, and that health problems are often unpredictable.
A decision regarding Moss' benefits will be made at the January Ferguson City Council meeting.
Ferguson Mayor Allen Dobbs and Police Chief David Moss shook hands following the special meeting of the Ferguson City Council Monday night.
Moss was hired on a full-time basis at the meeting; however, the council will discuss his benefits more in-depth at the January council meeting.

Ferguson Police Chief David Moss said he is "considering" the race for jailer. A seasoned candidate who has tested political waters in the past, Moss said he is thinking about running for jailer  " ... because of what I did four years ago and possible effects of the situation as it is now." Harris beat Moss 8,591 to 4,947 in the 2010 GOP primary election for jailer. The "situation as it is now" to which Moss refers is a civil rights violation lawsuit recently filed against Harris by an ex-assistant.
Moss finished third in a contest for sheriff in 1985 when Sam Catron, a former deputy sheriff and chief of police at Ferguson, upset Sheriff John Adams in the GOP primary election for sheriff.
