CINCINNATI — Cincinnati’s new police chief will show whether he has any arresting moves for the dance floor.

Chief James Craig has signed up to compete in a local version of “Dancing With the Stars.”

Cincinnati’s 2012 “Dancing for the Stars” contest is set for April 14 and benefits a Cincinnati Arts Association scholarship program.

Craig tells The Cincinnati Enquirer that knowing he’ll be helping youth experience arts education makes him want to dust off his dancing shoes.

The newspaper reports that before he formally arrived in Cincinnati, Craig mentioned his interest in ballroom dancing to a local TV reporter who was the winner of last year’s competition.

The police chief was sworn in during August.
