Sources said the list includes at least five insiders: Chief of Patrol Charles Williams; Deputy Supt. Hiram Grau; Assistant Deputy Supt. Eugene Williams; Chief of Detectives Maria Maher and Assistant Deputy Supt. Deb Kirby, head of the Internal Affairs Division.
A third woman, Assistant Deputy Supt. Anne Egan, also has a chance of making the final cut.
Assistant Deputy Supt. Matt Tobias and Frank Limon, chief of the Organized Crime Division, are longer-shot possibilities. First Deputy Police Supt. Dana Starks, who had a strained relationship with Cline, did not apply for the superintendent's job, sources said.
