Police Chief search continues

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The search for a new police chief continues.

The application period has closed and now human resources is sorting through the more than 100 applicants with the goal of creating a list of finalists.

"This is extremely critical for the future of the police department," said City of Savannah spokesman Brett Bell. "I think, it appears that we have some very strong applicants, certainly 114 is a very healthy number.  This is a premier police chief position in the United States, and we expect to have a really rock solid police chief moving forward."

That process will continue through the month.

The goal is to have a chief in office by September.
