Posted: 10/10/12 08:38
The meet and greets continued yesterday with the four finalists for Chief Of Police for the city of Hastings. Grand Island Police Captain Pete Kortum says he had been waiting for an opportunity to take the next step in his career and for a position to open up right here in South Central Nebraska, it was an opportunity he had to pursue. Kortum says there will be some adjustments that have to be made, if he is indeed to be hired as the next Chief of Police for Hastings.
Wrapping up the meet and greets was Gene Boner a veteran Captain with the Hastings Police Department. Boner says in his time at the Hastings Police Department he has built great relationships with many members of the community, relationships that will be vital if he is chosen to be the next Chief. Boner says heís seen so much support from the community since being named a finalist. When we spoke with City Administrator Joe Patterson concerning the time frame a Chief would be selected he told us a decision could come later this month or possibly sometime in early November, but given the importance of the position for the City itís a decision that wonít be rushed.
