Former Dallas police chief David Brown one of three finalists to become Chicago's new police superintendent.
According to a report by NBC Chicago, the Chicago Police Board will make a formal announcement of the three finalists in a public meeting on Wednesday afternoon.
Brown retired from the Dallas Police Department in 2016. He served as chief of police for six years, and spent more than three decades with the Dallas Police Department.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Brown said he joined the police force in 1983 because of the crack cocaine epidemic's impact on his neighborhood in Oak Cliff. During his tenure as chief, he focused on community policing and transparency while facing backlash from unions over the city's low pay. He fought to reduce reports of police brutality and officer-involved shootings.
The three finalists being considered for the Chicago police superintendent position are Brown, Chicago Police Deputy Chief Ernest Cato, and Kristen Zinman, the chief of police in west suburban Aurora.
The Chicago Police Board selected the three finalists from a list of 25 people who applied for the job.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is expected to announce her final selection on Thursday, NBC Chicago reports.
