Former Meridian Police chief up for new gig in Alaska

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Three finalists vying to be the Juneau's next police chief are scheduled to visit Alaska's capital next week.

The candidates to replace retiring chief Greg Browning are Bryce Johnson of Salt Lake City, Bill Musser of Meridian, Idaho, and Don Studt of Birmingham, Mich.

According to KINY, Juneau City Manager Kim Kiefer says all three of the finalists have a strong police department management background.

The candidates are scheduled for an assessment center taking place at Juneau Assembly chambers Wednesday and Thursday, with some portions open to the public. The assessment center is a series of observed scenarios to gauge a candidate's management style and capabilities.

The public also can meet the finalists Thursday evening at the chambers.

Browning has said he will retire May 31.
