LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) - The list of candidates for Los Alamos police chief has been reduced to five.
The Los Alamos Monitor reports that County Administrator Harry Burgess officials have narrowed the list of candidates and will begin final interviews later this month.
He says the candidates will be interviewed by three panels.
Officials narrowed it down to five through limited background inquires as well as a detailed review of all the materials they were asked to submit, including applications and resumes.
In June, Los Alamos Police Chief Wayne Torpy announced his retirement after he suffered a stroke.
