GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Two finalists have been chosen from a field of nine candidates who applied to become Grand Island’s next police chief.

The Grand Island Independent reports (https://bit.ly/1TN7wew ) that Grand Island Police Capt. Robert Falldorf and Jeffrey Wooten, a retired Army officer from Lincoln, have been selected as the top choices. Both are vying to replace current Chief Steve Lamken, who will retire on June 17.

Alfredo Ferrer of Cutler Bay, Florida, had also been named as a finalist but withdrew his name after accepting another position.

Final interviews for Wooten and Falldorf are scheduled for Wednesday. Mayor Jeremy Jensen is expected to make his recommendation for police chief in mid-June. That recommendation will then go to the city council.
