Adam Burden, the former assistant chief of police in Miami and one of 10 semifinalists to become Seattle Police Chief, has withdrawn from consideration.
Burden informed Mayor Mike McGinn's Police Chief Search Committee today that due to recent surgery he is unable to give full effort to the interview process.
The remaining nine candidates for Seattle chief will be interviewed by the Search Committee on Saturday, May 8, with the committee expected to select three finalists for Mayor McGinn's consideration on Tuesday, May 11.
Saturday's interviews, to be conducted in executive session and not open to the public, begin at 7 a.m. at Talaris Conference Center, 4000 NE 41st St., Seattle.[[In-content Ad]]
