Former Durham Police Chief Finalist May Re-Enter Race

Posted Updated

DURHAM, N.C. — A former candidate to become Durham's new police chief could re-enter the race.

William Carcara, who was on the list of finalists before the Durham search was reopened last week, was passed over for a police chief job in Sarasota, Florida, according to the

Durham Herald Sun


Carcara, the current police chief in Jefferson County, Ky., bowed out of the running for the Durham job when city manager Marcia Connor told him she needed a decision immediately.

Connor's first choice, Greg Watkins, resigned amid allegations of domestic abuse.

There is no word on if Carcara will reapply for the Durham job.
