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.
