Spokane Mayor David Condon has named a selection committee to work with the executive recruiting firm to narrow the list of 31 candidates to be Spokane’s next police chief.

The selection committee will work with Strategic Government Resources to identify a list of semifinalists by June 1. SGR has begun its review and evaluation of applicants, which the firm will present to the selection committee. Members of the selection committee are as follows:

  • Breean Beggs, City Council member
  • Gabe Cabellero, Police Leadership Advisory Committee member
  • Shon Davis, Bishop and Overseer of Kingdom Fellowship Church Alliance and president of the Police & Faith Leaders Alliance
  • Rick Dobrow, former interim Spokane Police Chief
  • Ken Hohenberg, Kennewick Police Chief
  • Lori Kinnear, City Council member and chair of the Public Safety Committee
  • Bart Logue, interim Police Ombudsman
  • Gloria Ochoa-Bruck, City Director of Multicultural Affairs
  • Theresa Sanders, City Administrator

Semifinalists will be given 20 days to submit responses to a written questionnaire and a recorded interview answering questions prepared by SGR. That information will be used to narrow the pool to a list of finalists by July 1. Finalists will be interviewed in July by members of separate community panels.
