Clearwater police chief to delay departure

CLEARWATER — Police Chief Sid Klein announced he will delay his retirement by almost a month to help his eventual replacement transition into the job.

His new retirement date will be Feb. 26. He was originally going to retire in January.

Klein, who has been Clearwater's chief since 1981, will have a role in picking his successor.

A field of 11 candidates for the job — culled from a field of 102 applicants — will visit Clearwater on Nov. 16 and 17 for interviews with Klein and other city officials. The city will then cut the list down to three finalists. Officials intend to have a new chief in place before Klein leaves.
