ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. — Vermont officials will review the top three candidates interviewing for the open St. Johnsbury police chief position this week.

The Caledonian-Record reports ( ) officials have not identified the finalists. However, they have provided details about each candidate’s work history.

The candidates include a retired Vermont state trooper, a lieutenant from a Connecticut police department and a former Massachusetts police officer who now works as a member of a sheriff’s department in Vermont. There are no internal candidates.

St. Johnsbury looks to replace former Chief Clem Houde, who was accused of exchanging inappropriate text messages with a female subordinate. He later resigned.

A search committee made up of local and state officials is interviewing the candidates.
