The City of Bend has named five finalists for the police chief position. Kurt Chapman with the City of Bend says 22 qualified applicants were identified, and from those, the list was narrowed down to five. “The five finalists for the position are all from out of state. They are Mr. Michael Davies; he’s from Discovery Bay, California, Mr. George Delgado from the Vancouver, Washington area. Mr. John Foster from Nevada City, California, Mr. Garr Nielsen from Eureka, California, and Mr. Jeffry Sale from Spokane, Washington.” The City will conduct interviews with the five finalists on June 21st, and hope to have a new chief by August. There will be a meet and greet with the candidates Monday, June 20th at McMenamins. Chapman says they had to hire a professional search agency to find candidates, as for the first time in 30 years, they needed to look outside of the County. He adds that the job is very attractive because of the great reputation the Bend Police Department has, and they has 22 applicants. The new chief will replace Sandi Baxter, who is retiring.
