HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Huntington Mayor Steve Williams announced Monday he has chosen two finalists for the job of police chief.
Williams said he’ll interview former Huntington police officer and retired FBI agent Joe Ciccarelli and Chicago Police Department Lt. Maurice Richards this week.
Ciccarelli, 57, lives in Milton and was with the FBI for nearly 30 years. He’s currently an investigator with the state Supreme Court. He was a Huntington police officer from 1978-1984.
Richards, 60, has been a Chicago police officer for 23 years. His district has 100 officers and 141,000 residents.
A news release from the mayor’s office Monday said there is no time frame when the new chief will be chosen.
Former chief Skip Holbrook was named chief of the Columbia, S.C. Police Department earlier this year.
