Three candidates left in the running to be next Columbus police chief

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – The search for Columbus’s next top cop is narrowed down to three candidates.

A search committee interviewed seven people before selecting the finalists.

The final three were selected for a meeting this morning.

Sources tell WCBI that no one currently employed at the Columbus Police Department made the list.

The names of those candidates have not been released.

All of those selected will do an interview with the committee and the city council.

No timeline has been set on when the city council could get a recommendation from the search committee on a possible hire for police chief.
