    Deputy Chief of Police Larry Esquivel said he was tapped by City Manager Debra Figone to fill in when Police Chief Chris Moore leaves on Jan. 18, but that he doesn't want to apply for the gig in a permanent way. He's spent 27 years on the San Jose police force.

    He was given the interim post in January when the former chief retired. He is a 28-year veteran with the department.

    The city manager first has to appoint the chief, and then, the city council will have to ratify the appointment.
