Bismarck names interim police chief

BISMARCK — The Bismarck City Commission has named Fred Wooten as the city's interim police chief.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Wooten is a 28-year veteran of the police department and has served as the deputy police chief since 2007.

Bismarck city commissioners decided not to hire any of the three finalists for the job last week, saying no one was qualified for the position.

The finalists were a Bismarck police lieutenant, an Ohio police chief and a California police captain.

Commissioners plan to re-advertise the position.

Bismarck is seeking a successor to Chief Keith Witt, who is retiring next month.
