Last week, St. Louis Police Chief Dan Isom confirmed that he was in the running to become the next superintendent of the Chicago Police Department.
But today, that seems to have changed.
The Chicago Police Board says two members of the city's police department and the police chief in Newark, N.J. are the three finalists to become Chicago's next police superintendent.
St. Louis Police Chief Dan Isom has confirmed that he is being considered for a job as superintendent of the Chicago Police Department.
Isom confirmed to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch today that his name has been recommended to incoming Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel.
When asked whether he would take the job if offered, Isom said he would "listen to the conversation," but that he preferred to stay in St. Louis.
