The city of San Marcos on Sept. 1 announced it had narrowed its search for a new police chief down to five candidates.

The list has been whittled down from an original pool of 92, and information from the city states that starting in mid- to late September, they will be interviewed “by five interview panels consisting of groups of community stakeholders, community criminal justice partners, Police Department employees, City Executive Team members, and the City Council.”

The candidate pool will then be narrowed to up to three candidates, at which time additional in-person interviews will be conducted, and a community meet and greet will take place.

A release from the city states more information will be forthcoming through additional press releases and the San Marcos Police Department Facebook Page.

The five candidates are:

Robert Brown: police chief with the Duncanville Police Department

Adele Frese: police chief in Salinas, California, with the Salinas Police Department

Bob Klett: interim police chief for the San Marcos Police Department

Brad McKeone: deputy chief with the Coral Springs Police Department

Stan Standridge: police chief with the Abilene Police Department
