3 finalists for US Marshal for Northern Illinois
CHICAGO (AP) — U.S. Senators Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk of Illinois have recommended to President Barack Obama three candidates to become the next United States Marshal for the Northern District of Illinois.
The candidates are the man now holding the job on an acting basis and two suburban Chicago police chiefs.
Among the finalists is Joel Kirch. He’s the acting U.S. Marshal for the district who has spent a quarter century with the service.
The senators also recommended Calumet City Police Chief Edward Gilmore. He’s been the police chief since 2008 after working both for the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Chicago Police Department.
Algonquin Police Chief Russell Laine is the third candidate. He has been chief since 1985 after serving as chief of police in Bartlett, Illinois, and Edgerton, Wisconsin.
