Town police chief candidates interviewed


There could be an announcement soon on who is going to be Coulee Dam’s new police chief.

The town’s Civil Service Commission, made up of Herb Sherburne, Joe Tynan and Councilmember Shawn Derrick, has received 10 applications of interest in the position.

The commission has pared this down to six final candidates.

A four-member interview team, made up of Sherburne, Tynan, town Councilmember Ken Miles and Nate Piturachsatit finished interviewing six of the 10 candidates who made it to the interview process last Saturday.

Sherburne said the six were from eastern Washington, and each went through an hour-long interview process.

The names of the top three candidates from Saturday’s interviews were forwarded to Mayor Gregory Wilder for selection.

It was expected that Wilder would make his selection within the next few days.

The new police chief will replace Pat Collins, who resigned in late September after being with the town for 26 years.
