Four candidates still in the running for St. Paul police chief

Mayor Chris Coleman will select the St. Paul police chief from a pool of four finalists.

A committee of 21 city officials interviewed the candidates Thursday and advanced each to Coleman for selection, according to the Pioneer Press.

During the interviews candidates were asked to speak on community policing, diversity and communication, according to the Pioneer Press.

The candidates are Watch Commander Todd Axtell, Senior Commanders Colleen Luna and Bill Martinz, and Assistant Chief Tomas Smith, according to the Star Tribune.

Coleman will interview the candidates next, and host two public forums April 26 and 27, where residents may ask pre-screened questions, according to the Star Tribune.

Coleman will select the candidate by mid-May, and submit the candidate's name for approval from the City Council, according to the Star Tribune.
