SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Thirty-one people have turned in applications to be Spokane’s next police chief. A 2012 search for a police chief attracted 16 applicants, including now former chief Frank Straub.

The Spokesman-Review reports (https://is.gd/gYs2xs ) the city contracted with a hiring firm, Strategic Government Resources, to identify and recruit candidates.

Straub, who filed a $4 million claim with the city before suing, was pushed out by Mayor David Condon in September following accusations of inappropriate behavior from people inside the police department.

Straub has denied the allegations, but his ouster and the mayor’s role in the forced resignation have been under scrutiny since then.
