July 28—CLINTON — The city of Clinton is in the final stretch of filling its police chief position, with the search now narrowed to three finalists.

They include Clinton Interim Police Chief Tom Bohle; Evanston, Illinois Police Commander Ryan Glew and West Liberty Police Chief Kevin Gyrion.

The three were selected from a field of 33 candidates, of which 10 were certified by the Clinton Civil Service Commission.

Bohle has been with the Clinton Police Department for 27 years and attained the rank of captain in 2010. He has a bachelor’s degree in sociology.

Glew has been a commander with the Evanston Police Department since 2013. He has spent his 18-year career in law enforcement with that department. He has a bachelor’s degree in criminology and is working on his master’s degree. He also attended the Northwestern School of Command.

Gyrion has been with West Liberty’s police department for nearly a year. Prior to coming to Iowa, he spent most of his 28-year law-enforcement career with the city of Chicago, where he left at the rank of lieutenant. He has a master’s degree in public safety and has been through the Senior Management Institute.

The public is invited to meet the candidates and hear their presentations on Monday, Aug. 3, when the three will be here for interviews.

Gyrion will present from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., Bohle from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Glew from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

The public meet-and-greet event will take place in the Council Chambers of Clinton City Hall at 611 S. Third St., Clinton. All residents are invited.

Following the interviews on Aug. 3, the city administrator will present a resolution appointing a candidate at the Aug. 11 City Council meeting.
