The Times-Picayune in New Orleans is reporting that Metro Police Department Chief Ronal Serpas is one of the three finalists for that city’s top-cop job.
The paper reported Wednesday afternoon that “[t]he three finalists received nods Wednesday from a search committed appointed by Mayor-elect Mitch Landrieu, who takes office Monday. The group eliminated three other candidates following a round of face-to-face interviews in a downtown New Orleans hotel Tuesday.”
Serpas is listed with Ronald Davis, police chief of East Palo Alto, Calif.; and John Harrington, police chief in St. Paul, Minn., according to the New Orleans paper.
The three apparently beat out former New Orleans police Capt. Louis Dabdoub, Norfolk, Va.; police Chief Bruce Marquis; and John Batiste, chief of the Washington State Patrol.
