Former College Station Police Chief Michael Clancey is no longer a candidate for police chief in Columbia, Missouri.

In a letter to the search committee, Clancey wrote, "It is with regret that I am withdrawing from the police chief's interview process. The city of Columbia is an outstanding opportunity for any law enforcement professional and I wish I could have continued in the selection process. However, personal and other commitments prevented that. I wish the city, police staff and residents the best outcome for their new chief of police."

Clancey served as Chief of Police in College Station from 2005-2008. Currently, he's the police chief in Saluda, South Carolina.

His withdrawal leaves four finalists for the job, one of which is former Bryan Police Chief Ken Burton. Burton led the Bryan police department from 2001-2003.
