New Lubbock sheriff could be decided Tuesday morning

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock could have a new sheriff as soon as Tuesday morning. The five finalists for the position started their interview process at 1 p.m. on Monday in front of the commissioners court.

The candidates scheduled on Mondays meeting agenda were, current Chief Deputy Kelly Rowe, Lubbock Animal Control Director Kevin Overstreet, U.S. Marshal Ronnie O'Neal, former major, Deputy Donald Carter and Lubbock-Cooper ISD Police Chief Jesse Pena.

The interviews wrapped up around 5:30 p.m., and commissioners went into executive session. The court, along with the county's human resources director, conducted the interviews during Monday's open meeting.

Something unique about this process was the transparency. Each candidate, if they wanted, could sit in on the other's interviews, along with anyone else. Some candidates did and some didn't.

There was a standard format for each candidate, beginning with opening remarks followed by standard questions, commissioner questions and closing remarks.

Coming up on NewsChannel 11 at 10, Ann Wyatt Little will bring you more details of the interviews and when the decision could possibly be made.
