Washington Police Chief Finalist For Wrightsville Beach Job

Washington's police chief is a finalist for the chief's job in another coastal town here in North Carolina.

Wrightsville Beach says Mick Reed is one of three contenders for its new police chief.

Reed has been police chief in Washington since June 2007 when he replaced Joe Stringer, who retired for health reasons.

Reed, who has 33 years of law enforcement experience, came to Washington from South Boston, Virginia.

Town manager Bob Simpson says Reed was among 133 initial candidates for the job and he hopes to name a new chief by the end of next month.

Wrightsville Beach has a population of around 2500 permanent residents, but during the summer it balloons to 30,000.
