SALT LAKE CITY --  Five months after a public, forced resignation, Salt Lake City's former police chief, Chris Burbank, has a new, high-profile job traveling the country studying and advising other departments.

Burbank will be the director of Law Enforcement Engagement for the Center for Policing Equity, a non-profit think-tank based in Los Angeles.

Burbank says he took the job on the condition he could live in Salt Lake City.

"I didn't want to move to LA.," he said. "I didn't want to move to Washington D.C. I like Salt Lake City, and I like the ability to be involved in what's going on locally as well as influencing policy nationally."
