Two city of Gillette police lieutenants are in the running for the chief of police position that will become vacant with the impending retirement of Police Chief Jim Hloucal in March.

The city's Human Resources Department interviewed finalists Thursday and a decision will be made in two weeks.

Give it to someone local. I'm sure they are more than qualified.


I only know 1 of the 5 candidates for the Police Chief position and I would NOT recommend Brent Wasson. I had an unpleasant experience with him about 10 years ago, in which he treated me in a very unprofessional manner. My recommendation would be to choose the very finest of the other 4 applicants... based on Expertise in Law Enforcement, Outstanding Recommendations from his Supervisor, an Excellent Track Record, and the ability to work with the citizens of Gillette.
