DOVER, Del. --- A panel tasked with recommending who should be nominated as Dover's next police chief on Monday began interviewing six of the remaining candidates in the running for the position.

Dover's Police Chief Selection Committee met with two men and one woman in individual sessions behind closed doors over the course of more than three hours. Three additional interviews are scheduled for later this week to determine who will succeed for police chief Marvin Mailey, who retired earlier this year.

Mayor Robin Christiansen, who heads the search committee, said six of the eight candidates invited for interviews decided to continue with the selection process and have already or will meet with the committee.

"That's the decision the committee has decided to go," he said.

Tim Mullaney.

Neither of the three people who met with the committee on Monday would comment to WBOC about their discussions with the committee, though none of them are current members of the Dover Police Department.

Christiansen would not confirm whether the committee plans to interview any in-house candidates for the job.

WBOC has learned one of the six remaining candidates is Tim Mullaney, a former U.S. Marshal and lieutenant with the Dover Police Department who in 2018 ran unsuccessfully as a Democratic candidate for state attorney general.

Mullaney confirmed to WBOC he will be interviewing with the search committee on Friday but declined further comment on his candidacy.
