Newark’s McCarthy Still a Chicago Finalist, Not Kerlikowske


The Chicago Police Board has chosen three finalists for the top cop job for Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel — two from inside the department as well as police chief Garry McCarthy of Newark, reports the Chiago Tribune. Not on the list was White House drug czar and former Seattle police chief Gil Kerkilowske, who had interviewed for the job.

The two finalists from within Chicago police ranks are Chief of Patrol Eugene Williams and Debra Kirby, deputy superintendent for the Bureau of Professional Standards. The three finalists have been interviewed by the board as well as by Emanuel, who has been conducting his own search.
