"I think he feels defeated here in Oakland," one Sgt. said. "You try to do everything you can, and it's never good enough"
By Sean Maher Oakland Tribune
OAKLAND, Calif. — Police Chief Anthony Batts, just a little more than a year into his three-year contract with the city of Oakland, is one of two finalists for the top cop job in San Jose, sources said Sunday.
Oakland Police Department spokeswoman Holly Joshi confirmed that Batts is in line to be San Jose's chief. Also in the running for the job is San Jose's acting police chief, Chris Moore; San Jose's city manager is expected to make a decision in the next few weeks.
