Sylvester -- The city of Sylvester will name a new police chief next week. The city has narrowed the list of candidates to three. 

They are Captain Joe Saxon of the Ft. Valley Police Department, Moultrie Sergeant Alfred Anderson and Moultrie Captain Gary Casteloes. 

Friday, city manager Debbie Bridges talked about what the city is looking for as they make their final decision.

 "Community service minded person to bring the citizens and the police department together tackling drug issues of course which all communities deal with and just building the team that will provide the quality of life for our citizens," said Sylvester City Manager Debbie Bridges.

Bridges said she's announcing the decision Monday night to city council. The chief's position became vacant in January when the chief resigned asking to be moved to the position of chief investigator.
