Albany - More than a year after Albany's police chief resigned, the city still doesn't have a new chief. Bob Boren has served as the interim chief since September of 2004, but he's leaving November 11th. Major Bobby Hooper will lead the department until a new chief is hired.

City Manager Alfred Lott says he plans to interview applicants the third week of November. By law, the city must release the names of the finalists, before a chief can be hired.

"I hope to be in a position to comply with the law that says I must announced the finalists by the middle of December," said Lott.

The city manager is also interviewing applicants for fire chief. Lott says he's interviewed at least six people for the position. James Carswell is currently serving as the interim Chief and is up for the job full-time.

Former Chief James Arrowood retired earlier this year.
