The search for a new chief of police for the town of Altavista is approaching its conclusion. The field of candidates has been narrowed to three, and those three have been interviewed. Town leadership hopes to select the candidate and offer the position soon, reported Waverly Coggsdale, Town Manager.

It will still take some time for the successful candidate to take the reins: once the person accepts the offer, there will be negotiations and a background check, and then the incoming chief must give notice at his previous place of employment.
