Rochester Mayor-elect Lovely Warren is keeping the interview process for the next police chief under wraps, but a former chief's name continues to come up.
Monday night, Warren confirmed that she has reached out to Cedric Alexander, but she would not go as far as to say she interviewed him.
Alexander served as Rochester Police Chief for nine months in 2005. Then-Mayor Bill Johnson appointed him after Bob Duffy retired to run for mayor.
Alexander left Rochester to become the Commissioner of the Division of Criminal Justice Services Office of Public Safety in Albany. He's currently chief of police for DeKalb County in Georgia.
Warren says she has interviewed several people for the job and there is one other person to interview. She hopes to have a decision within the next week or so.
Warren said, "This is one of the most important jobs of my administration and I don't want to rush to that decision."
