MADISON (WKOW) -- The semi-finalists for the Madison Police Chief job included another internal candidate and a former Madison police officer.
The Madison Police and Fire Commission released to 27 News the names of the four candidates among the final six who did not move on to become one of the two finalists.
Those two finalists are Sergeant Mike Koval and Captain Carl Gloede, both veterans of the Madison Police Department(MPD).
The others in the final six included former MPD officer Michael Scott, who is currently the director for the Center for Problem-Oriented Policing, Inc. in Madison. He's also a clinical professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Law School and previously served as police chief in Lauderhill, Fla.
MPD South District Captain of Police Joe Balles was also among the final six, as was Lt. David Ennis, with Anne Arundel County Police in Maryland. The other was Mark Brown, who works at Blackhawk Technical College in Janesville as the Dean of Associate Degree Programs for Public Safety, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice.
The Police and Fire Commission plans to do thorough background checks of the two finalists and additional interviews before choosing Madison's next police chief.
