Plenty of candidates for Warwick chief post

Tommy Coleman Tommy Coleman
WARWICK, GA (WALB) - More than a dozen people are vying to become Warwick's next police chief. The application deadline was today, and 16 people have applied.

Mayor Juanita Kinchens abruptly fired Chief David Morris earlier this month, because she said he didn't follow city policies.

Now the city council will have to narrow down the list down to three.

"Apparently because of all the publicity, people have started calling about it. Frankly I was a little surprised. With that much controversy arising out of it you would think that people might shy away from it. But not so," Tommy Coleman City Attorney.

The mayor and city council are expected to meet next week to pick their top three candidates.

Then their names will be released to the public, from then the city has 14 days to vote on the chief.
