The search for Clearwater’s next Chief of Police came to an end on January 11th. Beating out over 100 other applicants for the position, Anthony “Tony” Holloway has been named as Clearwater’s next Chief of Police and retiring Chief Sid Klein’s successor.
In February, Clearwater Police Chief Sid Klein will retire after serving 29 years as the city’s Chief of Police. The daunting task of finding a replacement lies on the shoulders of City Manager Bill Horne, aided by input from citizens and city officials. Horne has whittled down the list of applicants to two qualified candidates.
The City of Clearwater will host a forum from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 15 at the Harborview Center for the public to meet the four finalists under consideration for Clearwater’s Chief of Police position. The public will have the opportunity to ask the candidates questions and provide feedback to the city manager.
