Application Deadline for BPD Chief Approaches

Talk in Bryan of a quick search for a new police chief seems to be backed up if you look at the city's job listings. The listed deadline for applicants for the top cop spot in Bryan is July 5.

The listing asks applicants to have at least ten years experience in municipal law enforcement or an equivalent, along with five years in a command-level position of Lieutenant or above. A Bachelor's degree with major course work related to law enforcement is another must.

City Manager David Watkins promised a quick search limited to the state and former candidates for the Bryan chief job when he accepted Ty Morrow's resignation.

Last week, News 3 learned the current acting chief, Peter Scheets, is seeking to hold the job permanently.
