At the end of December, current Sheridan Police Chief Mike Card will be moving back to California, and there are six semi-finalists in a candidate pool for his replacement on the force. The panel weeding out the candidates from applications originally numbering around 100 has decided to withhold the names of these six, for the time being at least. This has not made a lot of community members very happy, and it prompted this week's Bank of Sheridan - sheridanmedia.com poll question: Should the City of Sheridan release the names of the candidates in the running for Sheridan Police Chief?"
While some in Sheridan seem to think that it's a good idea, others agree with the panel. And some think that the people should be able to elect the new Sheridan Police Chief, just as we do the County Sheriff.
