Salt Lake Mayor Palmer DePaulis Tuesday released the names of three of the four final candidates for Salt Lake City chief of police.

The three are acting police chief Ed Johnson; Utah Highway Patrol superintendent Mike Chabries; and Terry Knowles, former special agent in charge of Salt Lake City's FBI office, who left to take over as chief of the Sacramento bureau in 1986.Mike Zuhl, the mayor's chief of staff, said the mayor is keeping the fourth candidate, who is from out of state, secret. Zuhl said he expects the mayor to announce the name of the new chief soon.

The mayor is looking for a new chief to replace E. L. "Bud" Willoughby, who retired in May for medical reasons.
