The King City Police Department is about a month away from announcing a new police chief, following more than a year of department turmoil.

City Manager Michael Powers confirms the hiring team is down to one candidate and that a background check is all that remains to be completed.

Back in February of last year, the department was hit hard when several officers and the then police chief Bruce Miller were arrested as part of a corruption investigation.

Several trials and a couple of sentencing dates are scheduled in the coming months for those accused in the case.

The corruption involved a scheme to tow the vehicles of low-income Latinos.
