SYLVESTER, Ga. (WALB) - Sylvester is getting closer to naming a new police chief.
City leaders said they have narrowed down their search to three candidates.
Mayor Bill Yearta said a decision will be made soon.
“We’re down to the final stages,” Yearta said. “We still got three candidates and the hope is to have a police chief in the next week or so.”
Yearta said he hopes the incoming chief will bring the police force back to a full staff.
Former Police Chief Raymond Drennon resigned back in July to pursue opportunities at the Worth County Sheriff’s Office.
The city has been without a police chief for about six weeks.
