Fort Dodge's Police Chief could be headed back home. In an email to police department employees over the weekend, Chief Tim Carmody announced that he is a finalist for the Police Chief position in Bellevue, NE. Carmody, who has served as Fort Dodge Police Chief since September of 2010, previously served in the Omaha Police Department for 22 years. Carmody reportedly cited his interest in the job solely for the opportunity to be closer to immediate family members, several of which live in the Omaha area. Bellevue, a city of about 50,000 people, is located about 10 miles south of Omaha.
