Mayor Jacob Frey will nominate one final candidate, who must be approved by the City Council.

The search committee tasked with finding the next Minneapolis police chief has winnowed the applicant pool down to three, and none is from within the department.

The finalists are: Elvin Barren, a former deputy police chief in Detroit and the current chief of Southfield, Mich .; RaShall Brackney, the former chief in Charlottesville, Va .; and Brian O'Hara, a deputy mayor of Newark, N.J., who previously served as the city's director of public safety.

"We are thrilled to have recruited three national-caliber candidates, and I look forward to meeting with each one to ultimately choose our next police chief," Mayor Jacob Frey said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.
