SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The Canadian man chosen to be the next Spokane police ombudsman has failed to get a visa allowing him to work in the United States.

An expedited visa application for Raheel Humayun, the British Columbia resident who was offered the permanent job in November, was rejected last week.

At a meeting Monday night, Spokane officials were divided on how much longer they were willing to wait. The Spokesman-Review reports that eventually, they agreed to continue to pursue a visa for Humayun.

The police ombudsman’s office is open for business, thanks to the commission’s decision to hire a temporary ombudsman. Bart Logue has been working on an interim basis for the past six weeks.
