Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz has stated he would like a new chief in place by March and said the process is on track to accomplish that goal.
"I think we have a good mix of people who've applied," he said. "A lot of great internal candidates, people who currently serve in the Toledo Police department, but also we got a lot of national interest. We're going to work with the firm that we engaged with to help narrow the list down."
Kapszukiewicz said the city is looking at 14 or 15 candidates as some who applied do not meet the experience or education requirements.
"At the end of the day, the permanent chief could be Chief Troendle or one of the other internal applicants, and if that's how it turns out, it would be wonderful and benefit the city of Toledo," the mayor said. "But it was still valuable to go through the process of seeking national input."
