An announcement on a new police chief for the city of Bryan could come Tuesday.
City officials are attempting to finalize a deal that would land a new chief.
Tyrone Morrow from Fairfax County, Virginia and Eric Buske from Omaha, Nebraska are the two finalists following a nationwide search to replace the retired Mike Strope.
The city council has a special meeting scheduled for Tuesday, and while the police chief opening is not on the agenda, City Manager David Watkins had said he hoped to bring a finalist to the council this week.
Morrow, formerly in the Army, is Fairfax County's director of the Criminal Justice Academy.
"I'd be an accessible chief," Morrow told News 3 back in June. "I would care about the community and the police department, and I would take what I think is a good police department and seek to make it better."
Buske is a graduate of the FBI Academy, and is currently a deputy chief of the Criminal Investigations Bureau in Omaha's PD.
"I'm accessible, and I think that's a responsibility of mine," Buske told News 3 during the interview process. "I'm responsible to my employees personally, and professionally, I care about my officers. They have a difficult job and I like to help them make it."
