Police Oversight Commission to address dismissal of chief finalist

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

A week after a Rochester police chief finalist was denied an appeal to remain in consideration for the job, the city's Police Oversight Commission will share its thoughts Monday evening.

In what some saw as a controversial move, the Police Civil Service Commission voted two to one to deny an appeal by Roy Alston.

Alston wrote that he had never been disciplined by an employer, but the commission found that to be untrue. 

The former candidate argued that the background check was incomplete and without context. 

The oversight commission regularly provides feedback on police policy and practices.
