The City of Sunnyside has selected a new police chief.

West Richland Police Captain Albert Escalara was selected out of five finalists this afternoon.

Escalara has also worked for the Washington State Patrol for 26 years -- former Sunnyside police chief Ed Radder retired two years ago.

City Manager Don Day says Escalara will begin work at the beginning of May.
