Dougherty County is spending nearly $30,000 to find a new Police Chief. County Commissioners agreed to use the International Association of Chiefs of Police in their search for a replacement for Bill Kicklighter, who is retiring in September.

The IACP charges $24,000, plus nearly $5,000 for travel expenses for themselves and the candidates. The IACP is a non-profit corporation based in Washington, DC. They will narrow the search to a handful of candidates. Then, the county commissioners will interview the individuals, before choosing a new police chief.

Commissioner Jack Stone is not convinced the county needs to spend $29,000 dollars on the search, but still voted to use the IACP.

"That's a lot of the taxpayers' money. But if it will help us find the best person for the job, I'm for it," said Stone.

All applicants for Police Chief must have a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice or a closely related field and 10 years of law enforcement experience.
