Albany-- After a little more than a year without a permanent Albany Police Chief, there are now two candidates for the top cop job. "The process is going along just as I planned," says City Manager Alfred Lott.

The process should bring Albany a new Police Chief by January. City Manager Alfred Lott made finding a new Chief a top priority when he was hired. He narrowed a list of fifteen candidates down to two. Both candidates are from Virginia.

The top Police Chief candidate is James L. Younger of Arlington, Virginia. He's Deputy Chief of Police and Systems Management Division Commander for the Arlington County Police Department. He's held that position since 2002.

The second choice is Marvin Evans, the Organized Crime and Intelligence Division Bureau Commander for the Newport News Police Department. He has more than 33 years of law enforcement experience. The top two candidates were chosen after interviews with three candidates last week.

"I found their resumes to be appealing and they were persons of interest for the city. I used a panel of residents, citizen volunteers to help me make the selection," says Lott.

Lott also conducted interviews with a second panel that included the assistant city manager and human resources director. The list of candidates were provided by a headhunting firm. The new Chief will make between $50 and $80,000.
