Miami city manager suspends Art Acevedo as police chief with the intention of terminating him

By Amir Vera and Rebekah Riess, CNN

Miami City Manager Art Noriega has suspended Police Chief Art Acevedo “with the intent to terminate his employment,” according to a statement issued Monday by Noriega.

“The relationship between the Chief and the organization has become untenable and needed to be resolved promptly. In particular, the relationship between the Chief and the Police Department he leads — as well as with the community — has deteriorated beyond repair,” Noriega said.

“Relationships between employers and employees come down to fit and leadership style and unfortunately, Chief Acevedo is not the right fit for this organization,” the statement continued. “It is now time to move forward with the search for new leadership at MPD.”

Collective Intelligence, an art exhibit and fundraiser for the Kansas Food Bank, is a fitting tribute to Bean, according to her family and those who knew her. It mixes Bean’s love of art and artists and her passion to help others who are in need. Bean, a special exhibits coordinator with Wichita’s CityArts for 15 years, died in November 2020 at age 60.

More than 125 artworks by nearly 80 area artists will be on display and for sale from Friday evening, Oct. 8, through Sunday afternoon, Oct. 10, at Vertigo 232 Gallery, located above Hewitt’s Antiques, 232 N. Market. All proceeds from the sales of the artworks will be donated to the
