ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany Police Deputy Chief quit Thursday after he was not selected as the top candidate for the vacant chief's job.

Spencer Rozier, who was one of the final five candidates and the only current APD member interviewed, resigned immediately.  

Friday, the Albany City Manager announced Tallahassee Deputy Chief John Proctor as the top candidate to replace James Younger. Another of the final candidates says he fully supports that choice.  

Albany State University Police Chief Roberson Brown was one of the three finalists. Brown said he fully supports Proctor's selection. Brown talked with Proctor after the announcement and looks forward to working with him to make Albany safer.    

"It's about the citizens of this community who deserve to have the very best law enforcement agency they can have," said Brown. "The city manager has so far selected Mr. Proctor as that Chief, and I support this decision."

Chief Brown spent 24 years with the Miami Police Department before coming to Albany State University to head their Police force.
