Marshall Police Department Chief Jesus "Eddie" Campa has been named a finalist for the Galveston police chief position



Campa is among nine who were chosen as finalists from 68 applicants.
“Recently, I was selected as a finalist by the city of Galveston during their search for a chief of police and I am the honored to be included in the group of outstanding finalists being considered to lead public safety in a city with a major American commercial center and one of the largest ports in the United States,” Campa said Wednesday.
“My selection ... is a testament to the great work being done in Marshall and the spirit of collaboration between our department and community. While my work in Marshall continues to be a great personal passion, I would be remiss if I didn’t explore the opportunity presented by Galveston. Whatever happens, I consider this opportunity a tribute to Marshall.”
Campa was appointed MPD's chief in 2014. An El Paso native, Campa came to Marshall from the El Paso County Sheriff's Department, where he was the chief deputy.
Campa's time with MPD has included several initiatives including the "No Colors, No Labels" program designed to break down barriers in the community, Marshall's participation in National Night Out and a renewed focus on solving Marshall's backlog of cold cases.
Galveston City ManagerBrian Maxwell told the Galveston County "The Daily News" that he expected a single finalist to be announced by late April or early May.


The position was vacated by former Chief Hanry Porretto in September 2015.
