Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer has released the names of five candidates for chief of police.

Former Chief Robert White has left to be chief of the Denver Police Department. When White first announced he was leaving, Mayor Greg Fischer said he would prefer the next chief have local experience. All of the five finalists now being considered have ties to Louisville or Kentucky.

First is Steve Conrad, who is the chief of the Glendale, Arizona Police Department and a former assistant chief of the Louisville Metro Police Department.

Jeffersontown Police Chief Rick Sanders and Owensboro Chief Glen Skeens are also finalists. And two current LMPD deputy chiefs—Vincent Robison and Yvette Gentry—made the list as well.

Fischer plans to announce the new chief in April. The LMPD is currently led by interim Chief Ishmon Burks.
