The Sheridan City Council held a special session on Wednesday afternoon and announced that they are going to start the search for a new police chief all over again. The Council issued a statement saying they were pleased with the overall process and had six strong candidates near the end. Mayor Dave Kinskey explains why the City will not hire any candidates who made the final cut.
During this new hiring process all candidates will be informed from the beginning that if they make it to the on-site interview and assessment, they will be required to submit a biography that will be released to the public.
Mayor Kinskey and Human Resources Director Heather Doke agree this new search could take another 3 months to complete. The first step will be to re-advertise the opening for at least one month.
