The search may soon be over for a Dothan police chief.
With more than sixty applicants, City Manager Mike West is hoping to narrow down the numbers to about five people.
Salary requirements, education and credentials will be some of the criteria.
Most importantly though, are leadership ability and community relation skills.
Candidates are applying from as far away as New York City and Detroit with most having previous experience in law enforcement.
West hopes to begin the interviewing process as soon as possible.
He thinks it will all begin next week.
