Report: Kirkpatrick still hoping for Seattle

Spokane police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick has asked to be reconsidered for the top Seattle police job after a finalist withdrew, a Seattle TV station reports.

According to a web posting by Q13Fox in Seattle, Kirkpatrick e-mailed Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn Wednesday after Sacramento Police Chief Rick Braziel withdrew from the running. Kirkpatrick was one of 11 semi-finalists but was not one of three finalists.

Spokane police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer DeRuwe said today that Kirkpatrick’s status has not changed.

“Chief Kirkpatrick is committed to her role as chief of police for Spokane,” DeRuwe said. She declined further comment.
