Who's Up For the Police Chief Job?

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee April 26, 2010

The mayor's office just released the list of names of potential police chief candidates:

Judy Bradshaw, Chief of Police – Des Moines (IA) Police Department

Rick Braziel, Chief of Police – Sacramento (CA) Police Department

Adam Burden II, Former Assistant Chief of Police – Miami (FL) Police Department

Ronald Davis, Chief of Police – East Palo Alto (CA) Police Department

John Diaz, Interim Chief of Police – Seattle (WA) Police Department

Rick Gregory, Chief Administrative Officer/Acting Public Safety Director – New Castle County (DE)

Clark Kimerer, Assistant Chief of Police – Seattle (WA) Police Department

Anne Kirkpatrick, Chief of Police – Spokane (WA) Police Department

Jim Pugel, Assistant Chief of Police – Seattle (WA) Police Department

John Romero, Chief of Police – Lawrence (MA) Police Department

Lisa Womack, Former Chief of Police Elgin (IL) Police Department

Can't say I know much about most of the non-Seattle folks on the list, but whoever gets the job is in for a helluva ride.

The police chief search committee is expected to provide Mayor Mike McGinn with the names of the three best candidates next month.
