|McGlothin to name new police chief next week|
Ferriday Mayor-elect Glen McGlothin said Tuesday he hopes to name his choice for police chief next week.
He also announced that Anna Brakenridge will serve as city attorney in his administration. Brakenridge worked for McGlothin previously as town attorney. Derrick Carson serves in that capacity under outgoing Mayor Gene Allen.
A four-member panel is reviewing the 10 applications submitted for the police chief post. Richard Madison presently serves as police chief.
Serving on the panel are Bobby Sheppard, Anna Brakenridge, Ronny Freeman and Otis Hollins.
Sheppard was Ferriday police chief from 2000-2004. He now serves as chief investigator with the Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office.
McGlothin said Brakenridge will serve as city attorney for his administration.
"We're going to get it down to two or three and I will choose from there," said McGlothin of the police chief job. He said he was not prepared to release the names of the applicants at this time.
McGlothin said the panel is helping him to ask all of the right questions.
"I want to know what the candidates think are their best attributes to be chief, if they think the town's policy of writing a large number of tickets is the right thing to do, should they patrol neighborhoods besides just E.E. Wallace and whether their officers should get continued training," McGlothin said.
McGlothin said the new chief will be able to sit in on interviews for new officers and give his input to the mayor, because in Ferriday's government it is the mayor and not the chief of police who ultimately hires officers.
When he takes office, McGlothin said he will hire new people for a few key positions, but said he doesn't plan to fire many people.
McGlothin was mayor of Ferriday from 1988 until 1996, and was elected a third time in 2000.
He takes office for his fourth term on July 1.
