Halifax interviews top candidate for chief / November 19, 2012
Halifax Town Council’s personnel committee, headed by Councilman Holt Evans, will meet in closed session today to interview the top candidate to become Halifax’s new police chief.

The committee is set to convene for a special call meeting today at 2 p.m. in the Conference Room of Halifax Town Hall. The candidate being interviewed comes recommended for the Halifax post by the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police.

Three police chiefs —A. J. Panebianco of Middleburg, Chris Spare of Warsaw and Dave Sloggle of Williamsburg — served on a review panel to advise Halifax on its choice, along with Dana Schrad, Executive Director of the Virginia Association of Police Chiefs.

Twelve applicants submitted their names for the position by the September 15 deadline, and five were chosen by the VACO panel for interviews. The panel then ranked the top three candidates, based on their evaluations from the interviews.
