North Liberty is offering the public the chance to meet its five chief police finalists,  as well as offer input in the final selection for the city’s police chief.

The informal reception will be held 5:30 to 7 p.m. Sept. 11 in the North Liberty City Council Chambers, 3 Quail Creek Circle. 

“We were very pleased with the deep pool of qualified candidates we had to choose from,” said North Liberty City Administrator Ryan Heiar. “Getting the public’s input will be vital to the final decision on a role that is incredibly important to our community.”

Candidates will also meet with the mayor and city councilors, city staff, and members of local law enforcement as part of the selection process.

The five finalists are Michael Brotherton of Iowa City; Jason Doll of Carlisle, Iowa; Brad Nelson of Columbia, Mo.; Cliff Sessoms of Marion, Ind.; and Diane Venenga of North Liberty.

Venenga is serving as the North Liberty police interim police chief.

The city began the search for the police chief in June with the help of Moulder and Associates, a consulting firm specializing in law enforcement a firm headed by former Des Moines Police Chief William Moulder. The city plans to name a permanent police chief this fall.
