FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The city of Fairbanks has narrowed its search for a new police chief to four candidates but is not releasing their names.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://bit.ly/1sSYc8O) reports some candidates indicated they don’t want their current employer to be contacted about their applications.

Two of the four already work in the department.

Five people applied to replace former Chief Laren Zager and four were deemed qualified.

The four will be interviewed by a panel made up of Mayor John Eberhart, Councilmen Chris Anderson and Bernard Gatewood, city chief of staff Jim Williams, Human Resources director Barbara Sunday and Ana Marie Richards, a diversity and inclusion specialist at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Zager retired July 1. Deputy Chief Brad Johnson was appointed interim chief.
