HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Henderson City Council members are due to consider promoting a 20-year police department veteran to be city’s next police chief.

City Manager Jacob Snow last week recommended Deputy Chief Patrick Moers to replace former Chief Jutta Chambers.

Snow says Henderson police Capt. Jeff Stilsen and retired Las Vegas police Deputy Chief Bill Conger were finalists.

The council will vote on Moers’ appointment July 17.

Moers has been interim chief since Chambers retired earlier this year following the release of a video of Henderson police officers kicking a restrained man in the head during an October 2010 traffic stop.

Moers could be paid up to about $185,000 to lead the department with 390 police officers, 83 correction officers and more than 160 civilian employees.
