Jeff Follmer is no stranger to the media spotlight either.
Following the 2012 chase where 137 shots were fired and two unarmed civilians were killed, he called for the resignation of Police Chief Michael McGrath, citing lack of confidence in the police chief and department morale at an all-time low.
Follmer went as far as calling it a "perfect chase" and said the officers should be commended for their actions.
According to the CPPA, Follmer will take over as president early next year.
Loomis released the following statement Tuesday afternoon:
The silver lining in this election is that I will now have time to focus on my family and my health. I wish all those elected the best going forward and expect them to continue the work and success this union has been committed to. I will continue to devote my career to championing our profession and our law-abiding citizens in any way I can. I am proud of my service to both union and city and will sleep very well knowing I will be leaving them in better shape than I found them in.
