Kuckkahn: Spencer officially the choice

Kevin Spencer

Current Scottsbluff Police Captain Kevin Spencer will be the choice of Scottsbluff City Manager Rick Kuckkahn when he talks to the city council next Monday about hiring a new Police Chief. Spencer was at the top of the Scottsbluff Civil Service Commission eligibility list after testing and interviews of the two finalists were conducted last week.

Adam Creek, a Fort Smith, Arkansas Police criminal investigator, was ranked second behind Spencer. Kuckkahn said he is comfortable with the eligibility list and could not remember a time when he overrode the ranking of the civil service commission on any civil service job.

Kuckkahn says he will ask the city council May 6th to affirm his decision about hiring a Police Chief now because of the recent discussions about forming a countywide law enforcement agency.
