Search for Carbondale Police Chief Down to Two

The search for a new Police Chief in Carbondale is down to its final two, according to a press release from city manager Kevin Baity. According to the release, the list was pared down from the original 10, plus applicants after interviews were conducted last Friday. He says that the review panel has made their recommendation and that they hope to make a hire within the next 5-7 days. Former Police Chief Jody O’Guinn was dismissed last year in what many believe was a response to alleged mishandling in two high profile cases.
