Albany - Dougherty County is also considering consolidating its police and sheriff's departments, but the search for a new police chief continues. The International Association of Chiefs of Police is now accepting resumes for a replacement for Chief Bill Kicklighter, who retired last month.

The county administrator isn't sure how many people have applied for the job. The county is spending $29,000 on the IACP search and doesn't plan to halt the search while considering the consolidation of the DCP and the Sheriff's Department.

"Even if the county decides to consolidate the DCP and Sheriff's Department, it could takes months or even years. So, we must go ahead with the search for a police chief," said Richard Crowdis, County Administrator.

Some commissioners worry that if consolidation is approved, they will be left with the headache of finding a job for the newly hired police chief.
