Mayor's favorite interviewed

Mayor Johnny DuPree's choice for the new chief of police in Hattiesburg met with the city council and other city officials Friday.

Frazier Bolton, 58, was interviewed by four members of the city council during a special called meeting.

Bolton is currently the director of public safety for the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. He's a Perry County native.

He says he wants the Hub City's top law enforcement job because he loves the community.

Bolton will also speak with the police department's command staff and Councilman David Ware, who did not attend today's meeting.

Bolton is the brother of Forrest County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Charles Bolton.
