LEWISTON – The City of Lewiston has extended a conditional offer of employment to Jason Kuzik, one of two candidates interviewed for the position of Chief of Police. Kuzik is a 25-year law enforcement professional with the Henderson Police Department in Southern Nevada.
“Both candidates are very qualified professionals and interviewed well,” Mayor Daniel Johnson said. “This was a difficult decision and I took into account all the feedback I received from community members, City Council and staff members, and others who participated in the process.”
The next step in this hiring process is to conduct a thorough background check including a visit to the City of Henderson by Lewiston Police Department staff.
Kuzik is anticipated to begin his employment on October 3, 2022.
