Capt. Rick Dobrow is Chief Straub’s top candidate for assistant police chief

Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub’s top candidate to be assistant police chief is an internal candidate.

Dobrow started work as a police officer in Stockton, Calif. in 1982, according to a department newsletter. He joined the Spokane force in 1994. Dobrow was given the department’s purple heart award after a serious motorcycle crash in September 2006.
