GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - A 30-year employee of the Grand Island police department has been recommended by the city’s mayor as the next chief.

The Grand Island Independent (https://bit.ly/1YfBb1L ) reports that Grand Island Mayor Jeremy Jensen announced Wednesday that he will recommend Police Capt. Robert Falldorf to become the city’s next chief.

The City Council will review the recommendation Tuesday. If approved, Falldorf will succeed Steve Lamken, who is retiring, on June 20.

Fifty-one-year-old Falldorf is a Grand Island native who has worked for the department since 1986. He has worked in all three of the department’s divisions - patrol, criminal investigations and administration.

It was announced that he was one of two finalists for the position on May 26. The other finalist was Jeff Wooten, a longtime Army administrator of military police.
