Springfield Searches for Police Chief

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — The Springfield Police Department will have its new leader at the end of October.  But first, the city has to narrow down a pretty competitive applicant pool.

Fifty people applied for the position and in the next few weeks the city will narrow its options down to four to six.

Then the candidates will be brought in for interviews.

“The next step is I’ll select the top candidate, we’ll conduct some pretty intensive background investigations then we’ll go through negotiations and secure taht candidate and have them come here,” said Gino Grimaldi, Springfield City Manager.

 None of the candidates are from within the Springfield Police Department.
