TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — It's the final countdown for the three candidates still vying for Tallahassee Police Chief.

Monday night, each one will make a presentation to city leaders and the public. ABC 27's Kristian Thomas explains what we can expect.

This presentation is the final step before the next police chief is selected. The city is encouraging people to come listen to what the candidates have to say.

These are the finalists: TPD Majors Lonnie Scott and Lawrence Revell and Antonio Gilliam, who is currently Assistant Chief at the Saint Petersburg Police Department.

If you didn't come out for the last meeting, this is your chance to speak with these candidates and ask questions.

After Monday night's meeting, City Manager Reese Goad will select the top candidate and offer the position to that person.

According to the city, that person will not be named Monday. But it looks like we'll get a chance to hear what many of you have to say.

The meet and greet at The Lincoln Center center will start at 6:30 p.m. Monday.

We also combed through TPD's personnel files for both Scott and Revell ourselves, but nothing has stood out thus far. We're still waiting to get Gilliam's, but that has to come from the Saint Petersburg Police Department.
