Ypsilanti selects 2 internal candidates as finalists for police chief
Ypsilanti's next police chief will come from within the department, the city announced today.
A field of six finalists has been further narrowed to the two internal candidates - Lt. Craig Annas and Lt. Amy Walker.
Annas and Walker will now participate in a second round of interviews with City Manager Ed Koryzno.
“The police chief is the face of the police department to the community, and the consensus of both committees was that the two internal candidates distinguished themselves as having the potential to be that person,” Koryzno said in a press release.
The Police and Citizen Advisory Committees interviewed the six police chief candidates last Friday.
Koryzno intends to make his final announcement by Dec. 23, the city said.
Ypsilanti has been without a police chief since the end of May, when former Chief Matt Harshberger retired to become the public safety director for Pittsfield Township.
