SUNNYSIDE — Sunnyside’s Police Chief Al Escalera is among those continuing to wait for Pasco leadership to make their Police Chief appointment.

Escalera was selected as one of the top four finalists who interviewed with the public on Wednesday, July 31.

Other candidates include Pasco Deputy Chief Ken Roske and Police Captain Charles Goenken of the Manteca, California Police Department.

A fourth candidate, dropped out of consideration, citing personal emergency.
