::Police Chief Finalists Down To Only Two

From Raleigh Chronicle Staff And Wire Reports
Tuesday, July 24, 2007

RALEIGH - The City of Raleigh last week announced that they have narrowed down the list of finalists for the "top cop" position of Raleigh Police Chief from 45 applicants down to only two candidates.  The city has been seeking a replacement since former Police Chief Jane Perlov resigned in March.

The two finalists include Harry Patrick Dolan, age 49, who is currently serving as chief of the Grand Rapids, Michigan Police Department and Samuel Kent Sholar, age 46, who has been the acting chief of the Raleigh Police Department since Perlov resigned.

Forums To Interview Chief Candidates

The city says that Raleigh police staff will be able to interview the candidates on Thursday July 26th at from 11am to 12:30pm at the city offices downtown.

The public is invited for an open question and answer session later that day at from 6:30pm to 8pm in the council chamber of the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex, the main Raleigh city offices located at 222 W. Hargett Street in downtown.

About The Candidates

The City of Raleigh provided descriptions of each of the candidate's careers.

What appears below are the unedited descriptions as provided by the city:

Candidate Harry Patrick Dolan:
Eighteen of Mr. Dolan's 27 years as a law enforcement officer have been spent in North Carolina. Five of those years were with the Raleigh Police Department.

Mr. Dolan has held the position of chief of the Grand Rapids Police Department for the past nine years. The Grand Rapids Police Department has a staff of 472 to serve a population of nearly 200,000.

He was chief of the Lumberton Police Department from 1992 to 1998. Mr. Dolan served as Black Mountain's chief of police from 1987 to 1992. He was named the most outstanding graduate of the Raleigh Police Academy in 1982 and served Raleigh for five years, leaving for Black Mountain with the rank of first-class police officer.

He began his law-enforcement career in 1980 as a Buncombe County deputy sheriff.

The New York native earned an associate degree in law enforcement from Palm Beach Community College, a bachelor' degree in criminal justice from Western Carolina University and a master's degree in organizational leadership from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

He is a graduate of the Police Executive Development Program of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Institute of Government.

Candidate Samuel Kent Sholar
Mr. Sholar's entire 24-year law-enforcement career has been with the City of Raleigh Police Department, joining in 1983 and enjoying his first promotion, to the rank of detective, in 1990.

He earned his sergeant's stripes in 1995, was elevated to lieutenant in 2000, and was named captain/district commander in 2002.

Mr. Sholar made major in 2003 and was named deputy chief in December 2006. Mr. Allen tapped Mr. Sholar to serve as interim chief in March when former Police Chief Jane Perlov left the position.

The Raleigh Police Department has a staff of 871 to serve a population of 360,000.

The Duplin County native earned an associate's degree in criminal justice from Wake Technical Community College and a bachelor's degree in accounting from North Carolina Wesleyan College.

He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, the Police Executive Research Forum's Senior Management Institute for Police and North Carolina State University's Administrative Officers Management Program.   ::
