Miami Police: Miguel Exposito In. Frank Fernandez Out.

Mayor Tomas Regalado;'s new administration has made its first choice -- and it's a guy who ain't likely to be too popular at the headquarters on NW Second Avenue.

Miguel Exposito who parlayed a whistle blower suit into a the rank of major, will become new Miami police chief, multiple sources are reporting.  

Exposito, you will recall, was demoted after publicly complaining about dossiers on elected officials. (Shades of Regalado?) He also supported calling in the FBI to investigate the alleged planting of a gun in the shooting of a homeless guy.

Meanwhile, 25-year veteran Frank Fernandez announced his retirement, noting in a memo that, "It is no secret my philosophy" is similar to [departing chief] Chief Timoney's.
