Foster passed up for Santa Fe police chief job

-A A +A

A former Los Alamos police commander who was a finalist to become Santa Fe’s next police chief was not selected for the position.
Randy Foster, of White Rock, served as a Santa Fe County Sheriff’s deputy and as a police commander with the Los Alamos Police Department before applying for the job.
Foster was one of four finalists for the position.
The position instead went to Eric Garcia, 42, who served 18 years with the New Mexico State Police and more recently as Española’s public safety director.
His selection was announced Monday. Garcia will replace Ray Rael, who resigned as police chief in March.
Garcia says his priorities include reducing property crime, increasing police presence in the community and trying to have officers work four-day work weeks.
City spokeswoman Jodi McGinnis Porter says Garcia got the nod because of his focus on community policing, history of improving officer morale and commitment to introducing new training programs.
