FERGUSON, MO., POLICE CHIEF SEARCH DOWN TO 4 CANDIDATES
Nearly a year after the chief of the troubled Ferguson Police Department resigned, city officials said Friday they have narrowed the search for a permanent successor to four candidates.
The community outside St. Louis received international attention after the police shooting death of Michael Brown in August 2014 sparked months of sometimes violent protests.
The city said the finalists include Mark Becker, the current East Chicago, Ind., police chief; Brenda Jones, a former police chief in Pine Bluff, Ark.; Frank McCall Jr., the police chief in nearby Berkeley, Mo.; and Delrish Moss, who oversees the Miami Police Department’s public information/ community relations division.
