Months after launching a nationwide search for a new police chief, Peoria has narrowed the field of applicants from 62 to three.

The finalists are Police Chief Roy W. Minter of Denton, Texas; Deputy Police Chief Michael Painter of Kent, Wash.; and Police Chief Todd Wuestewald of Broken Arrow, Okla.

“We’re looking for a police professional who has a lot of experience in managing and leading a department, particularly around community-oriented policing,” said City Manager Carl Swenson.

The finalists will interview in Peoria Jan. 10 and 11. The city hopes to hire a new chief by mid to late March.

Last fall, Peoria Police Chief Larry Ratcliff announced plans to retire, effective Feb. 1.
