Ypsilanti announces 6 finalists for top cop job
Six candidates - 2 internal and 4 external - will be interviewed Friday at Ypsilanti City Hall as the city seeks to replace former Police Chief Matthew Harshberger.
The finalists are Ypsilanti police lieutenants Craig Annas and Amy Walker, along with Roy McCallister Jr., retired lieutenant and commanding officer from Detroit; Donald Porret, current Port Huron police chief; James Ridener, current Westland police chief; and Neal Rossow, current Flat Rock police chief.
Harshberger retired from his Ypsilanti post at the end of May this year to become the public safety director for Pittsfield Township.
City Manager Ed Koryzno hopes to extend a conditional offer to one of the candidates by the end of the next week, a press release said.
After that offer has been accepted, and a background investigation is done, the new police chief will be announced.
