CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A police advisory committee will meet next week to discuss the hiring of a new police chief for Charles Town out of 37 applicants who have applied.
Mayor Randolph Hilton said that applications have come in from across the country for the position.
The committee will meet on Jan. 13 to discuss the hiring of a new chief.
The 14-member committee was not able to meet during the holidays, Hilton said.
Hilton said he's been pleased with the work done by the police advisory committee.
The committee was appointed following a study by the International Association of Chiefs of Police released last October that made 33 recommendations to improve the department.
