SEATTLE (AP) - Community members - including one critic who helped vet candidates in the official search - rallied at Seattle city hall on Tuesday after the interim police chief was passed over for the permanent job.

Last week, the top 3 finalists were named, including: former Pittsburgh police chief Cameron McLay; Minneapolis Police Department deputy chief of patrol Eddie Frizell and assistant chief Ely Reyes of the Austin Police Department in Texas.

Enrique Gonzalez, who was on the search committee that named five semifinalists, said it was “not an honest process” after Seattle’s interim police chief Carmen Best was eliminated from consideration.
