ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - City officials have named three finalists who are vying to become Albuquerque's next police chief.

A spokeswoman for Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry said Thursday the final candidates were chosen from 45 applicants after a national search.

Among the finalists are Craig Gosalski, assistant chief of Houston's Metro Police Department; Thomas W. Lawrence, assistance chief for the Dallas Police Department and New Mexico Department of Public Safety Secretary Gorden Eden.

Erin Thompson, a mayor's spokeswoman, said a decision on the police chief could come as early as Friday.

The Albuquerque Police Department currently is under a U.S. Department of Justice investigation after around three dozen police shootings since 2010 and allegations of excessive force.
