Mayor Jenny Durkan announced three finalists for the position of Chief of Police on Friday. Current interim chief, Carmen Best, was not among them.
Best has led the department since Jan. 1, when she assumed command from former Chief Kathleen O’Toole. Best was the first Black woman to head the department.
Instead, the city has put forward three male candidates to vie for the position: Eddie Frizell, an inspector at the Minneapolis Police Department; Cameron McLay, the former chief of police in Pittsburgh; and Ely Reyes, the assistant chief in Austin.
