Local police and city officials are rolling out the red carpet today for five candidates vying for the Bend Police Chief job. Bend Police Chief Sandi Baxter is retiring at the end of the month. So today five candidates for that position are in town getting an overview of the city. Kurt Chapman is an Assistant Human Resources Manager for the city: “There are 5 candidates from Washington and California. They arrived yesterday and today they are meeting with the Chief and touring the police station; having lunch with the Chief, touring the town, ride alongs.” And tonight it’s your chance to meet these five candidates. There is a reception at McMenamins from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  Tuesday, the candidates will face panel and one-on -one interviews and then the five will be whittled down to two top candidates. The City hopes to have a new chief in place by mid- August.
