The search for the next Chief of Police for the City of New Braunfels, Texas quickly went from a massive pile of applicants to the top few that the city manager is now considering for the job. After nearly 100 applications were submitted for the city’s top police officer position, City Manager Michael Morrison says that the list has already been whittled down significantly, going from the original 96 down to just 16 applications. Morrison says the original pool of applicants were from across the country, with no internal applicants from existing New Braunfels Police officers. And he says that after whittling down the list, it still contains applicants from across the country, with a couple from northern states, two from the West Coast, and several from inside the state of Texas. Morrison says that over the next month, he’ll be asking for advice from Police Department staff as he continues to whittle the list down to the top 5 candidates by early September. Then interviews will be held, and an offer made, with the new chief hopefully coming on baord by the end of October, although the City Manager says he may have to be a bit flexible with when the newly selected chief begins work in New Braunfels. As the list of 16 is culled down to the final 5 applicants, we’ll have more updates for you here on AM 1420.
