BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- The process continues to find someone to run the Battle Creek Police Department, even on an interim basis.

Their City Manager has one foot out the door and their Asst. City Manager is already gone.

The Assistant Chief has turned down the offer to become interim chief because he too plans to leave soon.

Community Services Director Susan Bedsole is moving forward with the effort. She expects to become interim manager when Ken Tsuchiyama retires next week.

While an executive headhunting firm is already working to find a permanent police chief, she is talking to potential candidates for the interim job, which she hopes to fill in the next week or two.
