EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - Eau Claire can promote one of its own for its new police chief -- or it can choose someone who's been on the beat in Milwaukee, Chicago, or Alaska. 

Eau Claire's Police and Fire Commission has announced the names of four candidates it will soon interview to replace Jerry Matysik. He retired last month after 10 years heading the Eau Claire police department.  

The city's deputy chief, Jerry Staniszewski, is one of the finalists -- along with retired Milwaukee police captain David Zibolski of DeForest, Chicago police lieutenant Maurice Richards, and Anchorage Alaska deputy chief Steven Hebbe. 

Officials hope to have a new police chief on the job by the end of the year.
