Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler will conduct in-person interviews this week with four finalists for the city’s chief of police position.
Two of the candidates have asked not to be named. The other two did not request confidentiality.
They are Portland’s current police chief, Mike Marshman, and Larry Scirotto, an assistant police chief with the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.
Marshman was promoted to chief in June 2016 after his predecessor, Larry O’Dea, resigned.
Marshman previously served as the bureau’s liaison to the federal Department of Justice. He was charged with managing implementation of the city’s settlement with the DOJ over excessive police use of force.
Scirotto manages the Pittsburgh Police Office of Professional Standards. It’s in charge of internal investigations, policy and training. He started his career as an officer in Pittsburgh in 1995 and worked his way up the ranks, according to a biography of him posted on a Pittsburgh government website.
The Oregonian reported former Portland Police Chief Charles Moose was in the city last week but would not say whether he was in the running for the chief position.
