The city announced that interim Commissioner Janide Sidifall will remain in the department as deputy commissioner.
Price, who currently lives in Atlanta’s East Lake neighborhood, has lived and worked in metro Atlanta since 1994.
“It is an honor to serve the city I chose as my home,” Prince said in a statement. “I look forward to working with the Administration, neighborhood organizations, the business community and everyone who will help ensure Atlanta is a city designed and planned for the future.”
The city is still conducting nationwide searches for permanent executives to lead the police and transportation departments.
