SAN JOSE (BCN) – San Jose has reduced the pool of candidates to four finalists, including three who are currently in the department. City Manager David Sykes wrote this on Monday in a letter to City Councilor and Mayor Sam Liccardo.
San Jose interim chief David Tindall, deputy chiefs Anthony Mata and Heather Randol, and retired Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania deputy chief of police Larry Scirotto are the four finalists.

Sykes wrote in his letter to the city council and the mayor that the last four will each be interviewed by his staff and he will then make the final decision on who should be passed on for confirmation by the city council by the scheduled time from mid to mid end March.
The position of San Jose Police Chief remains open after former chief Eddie Garcia announced his retirement last summer. Garcia has been Dallas’ police chief since then.
