HONOLULU (AP) — The Honolulu Police Commission on Thursday announced the names of four finalists who could be the department’s next chief.

Seven people vying for the job spent earlier this week going through an assessment process that included a mock press conference.

The four highest-scorers advanced as finalists: Scott Ebner, Mike Lambert, Arthur “Joe” Logan and Ben Moszkowicz.

Lambert and Moszkowicz are Honolulu police majors. Lambert heads the training division. Moszkowicz heads the traffic division.

Logan is a retired Army major general who was head of the Hawaii National Guard.

Ebner is a retired New Jersey state police lieutenant colonel.

Out-of-state consultant PSI Services LLC was contracted for $145,777 to assess the candidates, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported.

The commission will take over the remainder of the selection process, which includes allowing the public to interact with the finalists, Hawaii News Now reported.
