SANTA FE (AP) — Three men have been named as finalists to become Santa Fe's next police chief.

The city announced Friday that Espanola Public Safety Director Eric Garcia, Santa Fe County Sheriff's deputy Randy Foester and former Albuquerque Police Department Deputy Chief Joseph Silva are the final candidates for the job.

Officials say they were chosen for nearly 50 candidates.

Former Police Chief Ray Rael retired in March.

Mayor Javier Gonzales and City Manager Brian Snyder are scheduled to interview the final candidates next week.
