HONOLULU -

The Honolulu Police Commission has narrowed the field of candidates for Honolulu's top cop down to seven. 

The short list of names still in the running for the next police chief were announced after a lengthy meeting where the process for selection was explained.

"The remaining step is for you to look at those profiles and figure out which one gives us the best match for today," Joseph Hinish, Senior Consultant at E.B. Jacobs said. 

The seven finalists who are one step closer to becoming the next Honolulu Police Chief are: 

- A former Drug Enforcement Agent, Thomas Aiu
- Honolulu Police Major, Susan Ballard, who's also the only woman who made the cut
- Former HPD Major, Kurt Kendro
- Retired HPD Assistant Chief, Kevin Lima
- HPD Deputy Chief Paul Putzulu

Two finalists are applicants from out of state
- Former Pennsylvania State Police Major, Mark Lomax
- Arlington, Texas Police Deputy-Chief, James Lowery

These seven candidates will now go through a background check and an interview process.

"We're going to meet the last full week in October and at that time, we shall have all the interviews and whatever information we need on the seven candidates and we will make our decision at that time," Max Sword, Honolulu Police Commission said. 

The public can also provide testimony in person at the commission meeting on October 4 or submit written testimony by mail or email.
