Durham Police Chief Search Down To 14 Candidates

An update arrived today regarding the Durham Police Department's search for a new chief to take over Jose Lopez's old gig. The highlights: 

*42 candidates applied.
*Those candidates have been narrowed to 14.
*The remaining candidates will go through telephone interviews and writing exercises over the next few weeks.
*Two or three finalists will meet with police department staff and the public in late March. 
*City is still on track to have an offer out to a candidate by early April, with a start date in early May. 

“Even though we’re at this stage, community input will still be important going forward, and we encourage the public to take advantage of the opportunities to share their thoughts, including the surveys and forums," says city manager Tom Bonfield. 

To that end, there will be a second forum, conducted in Spanish, for the Latino community to provide input. That's being held this Sunday, February 14, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church (810 W. Chapel Hill) at 2:45 p.m. 

You can also still toss in your two cents about what you want to see in Durham's new chief by participating in an online survey here (Spanish version here). Since December, 427 surveys have been completed in English and seven in Spanish. 

If you're just joining us, the old guy got run out of town last year.
