Second candidate drops out of running to become police chief

Another candidate has dropped out of the running to become the new chief of police in Seattle.

Another candidate has dropped out of the running to become the new chief of police in Seattle.

Adam Burden, the former assistant chief of police in Miami and one of 10 semifinalists for the job, has withdrawn his name, according to Mayor Mike McGinn's office Wednesday.

Burden told the mayor's search committee that he's dropping out due to recent surgery and "is unable to give full effort to the interview process," according to a news release.

Last week, Judy Bradshaw, the chief of police in Des Moines, Iowa, bowed out, telling the mayor's search committee that she had reconsidered.

The remaining nine candidates will be interviewed Saturday, with the committee expected to select three finalists for McGinn's consideration by Tuesday.

Saturday's interviews are not open to the public. For more information about the search process, see the committee's website, www.seattle.gov/mayor/spdChiefSearch/
