The clock is ticking on selection of a new police chief in Sarasota. Now, City Manager Tom Barwin is including a public meet-and-greet with the five finalists before he makes his decision. All five are scheduled to met the public a week from Friday, that’s October fifth, at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on North Tamiami Trail. The finalists include division commanders from Tampa and Clearwater as well as former police chiefs in suburban Chicago and Ocean City, Maryland and a deputy police chief from Richmond.
