CAMP VERDE - The Town of Camp Verde announced on Tuesday the list of finalist to replace soon-to-be retiring Marshal Dave Smith.

From nearly 80 applications the town has narrowed it down to six - three from Arizona and three from out of state.

The three Arizona candidates include Ron Wheeler, field commander for the Sedona Police Department, Marc Denny, enforcement commander for the Cochise County Sheriff's Office, and Nancy Gardner, division commander for Avondale PD.

Wheeler has served with the Sedona PD since 2002 and as a field operations or support services commander since 2006. He previously served seven years with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and 10 years as an EMT and firefighter in Canada.

Denny has served for the Cochise County Sheriff's Office since 1997, heading up several departments including special investigations and special weapons and tactics. He began his law enforcement career in Lake Havasu City in 1988.

Gardner served 10 years as with the Gilbert PD before taking a lieutenant/division commander's position with Avondale in 2007. She has a bachelor's degree in business management and a master's degree in human relations.

The three out-of-state finalist are Zephry Bingham, chief of police in Plattsville, Mo., John Dyer, patrol commander in Oak Harbor, Wash., and David Banaszynski, chief of police for Village of Shorewood, Wis.

Bingham has been in law enforcement since 1988, serving in four different communities in Missouri. He has been the chief in Plattsville since 2004 and has a degree in management information systems and computer science.

Dyer has been the patrol commander for Oak Harbor PD since 2007. He has been with the department since 1984, named Office of the Year 10 times while serving on the boards of directors for several youth organizations.

Branaszynski served as the acting police chief in Village of Shorewood, Wis., for a year before assuming the full time position in 2005. He has been with the department since 1981 and has a master's degree in business management.

A board consisting of three local police chiefs, three council members, two members of the CVMO staff and Town Manager Russ Martin interviewed the candidates on Thursday.

Martin will announce his choice by Jan. 1.
