Even though he announced his retirement as Elk Grove's Police Chief and his replacement announced, Robert Lehner is being reconsidered for the top position in the Spokane, Wash. Police Department.

Before announcing his retirement as Chief of the Elk Grove Police Department, Lehner was one of four finalists for the Spokane Chief position. That position was initially awarded to Spokane Assistant Police Chief Craig Meidl by Mayor David Condon.

After Condon's decision, the Spokane City Council rejected Meidl promotion. As a result of that decision, the four finalists for the job were announced late yesterday afternoon.

Aside from Lehner and Meidl, the other finalist includes Yakima, Wash. Police Department Chief Dominic Rizzi, and Frisco, Texas Police Department Chief Robert Bruce. The four candidates will be interviewed on Tuesday, September 20 at a community forum in Spokane. 

With his days winding down as Elk Grove's Police Chief, Lehner agreed to participate in Spokane's recruitment process and next week's community forum, although he does not have high expectations.

"At this point, I'm still planning on retirement," he said.
