City Manager Bruce Moore has further reduced a pool of candidates for Little Rock police chief from seven to three, including the current assistant chief of LRPD Eric Higgins. Public meetings with the three are planned in the process for Moore to choose a successor to the retiring Stuart Thomas.

The city announced:

Little Rock City Manager Bruce T. Moore today announced the names of the three finalists to be the next Little Rock Police Chief.

The three finalists are (in alphabetical order):

Kenton Buckner, Assistant Chief of Police Louisville Metro Police Department, Louisville KY

Eric Higgins, Assistant Chief of Police Little Rock Police Department

John Ray, Executive Chief Deputy Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office, Fort Worth TX

“We are very fortunate to have an impressive group of candidates to interview,” Moore said. “With the strong list of individuals, choosing the finalists was a difficult task. However after a careful review of the candidates, I am pleased to be able to narrow down the list to these three outstanding finalists.”

“I look forward to continuing to visit with each of the three in the coming weeks as the decision is made regarding the next individual to lead the outstanding men and women of the Little Rock Police Department,” Moore said.

City staff will begin the process of scheduling public receptions for each of the candidates in order to allow the citizens of Little Rock an opportunity to meet them. These receptions will also give Little Rock residents the chance to participate in a question and answer session with each candidate.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
