The City of Bend has its top two candidates for the Police Chief spot narrowed down; and now they are doing their homework on the finalists.  Last week the top five visited Bend, and City spokesman Justin Finestone says now they are doing extensive background checks on the two that are left: "They'll be some sight visits where the city manager and current police chief some other personnel will go to the folks towns and talk with people they work with- members of the community that have interactions with the police department, to see how they operate in their environments- just to double check everything we think we got out of the interviews last week.” The City is not releasing the names of the 2 finalists. We do know one who is not still in the running: according to a California newspaper, last week the Chief of Eureka Police, Chief Garr Nielsen, was suddenly fired from his job on Friday. He was given five minutes to clean out his desk and change out of his police uniform. Finestone confirms that Nielsen is not one of the top two finalists for Bend Police Chief position.
