MADISON, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Officials in Wisconsin's second-largest city will start reviewing applications today for a new police chief. Twenty people applied to replace Madison Chief Noble Wray, including four from within the city's police force. Wray retired last fall after 28 years in the department, his last nine as chief.
Acting Police Chief Randy Gaber is not among the candidates for the permanent job. He said it would have taken time away from his family, and he doesn't want that. Also, Gaber built a house just outside Madison last year -- and a city ordinance requires the top officials to live within the city limits.
