SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Three men have been identified as finalists to become police chief of Spokane.

The three candidates announced Thursday are James Dermody, a captain of the Seattle Police Department; Dominic Rizzi, chief of the Yakima Police Department; and Robert Lehner, chief of the Elk Grove, California, Police Department.

The candidates will be interviewed in Spokane on Wednesday.

City spokesman Brian Coddington says the next chief could be chosen as early as mid-August.

The new chief will be the seventh person to lead the department in the past five years.
