Members of a committee responsible for helping select the next police chief must rest their entire seven-month process to find a new top cop.
An attorney hired to look into the committee's progress concluded three of the five candidates are ineligible to become Sandusky's next police chief because they are not active duty and working full time.
"This should be considered a failed search," committee member Thanda Maceo said. "If we want to do justice to the citizens of Sandusky, and we are still in need of a police chief, we need to reopen the search."
