Newburgh Ready to Select New Police Chief

Newburgh now has four candidates for city police chief. Civil Service Commission Member, Thomas Murphy told the commission on Wednesday that six people took the civil service exam in March and four passed. According to regulations three people must have passed for the list of candidates to be established and the selection process to move forward. The four candidates will now be interviewed to determine their interest in the position. One of the requirements is that they agree to move into the city. Sources say, Interim Chief Daniel Cameron refused the test because he believed that with 20 years on the Newburgh force, he deserved to be given a promotional exam. It is now up to the city manager to select one of the passing candidates and then a background check will be performed and salary negotiated.
