LEESBURG, GA (WALB) - Members of the Leesburg City Council will form a committee on Tuesday to look at a possible replacement for the city's late police chief, Charles Moore.

It's been almost two weeks since the passing of the former chief, who served three decades in law enforcement.

City Manager Bob Alexander said the committee will decide whether to leave the position vacant, or hire a new police chief.

"In the meantime, we have Major David Burlington, who is our interim chief, just to keep things moving along consistently," said Alexander.

Alexander also said it's important to get the community's input since Moore had such a strong connection to the city.

Moore served the Leesburg Police Department for 38 years and was the police chief for 19 of those.
