Will the Commission see it the same way? Only time will tell. Wednesday September 3rd at 9:30am, the public is invited to attend a Police Commission meeting to interview and discuss the final 6 applicants for Chief. The meeting will be held at the Maui Beach Hotel in the Elleair Rainbow Room. The public is allowed to testify on the candidates but the discussion will mostly likely be held in executive session as they are considered personnel matters.
