67 vie for police chief post
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The City of Martinsburg has received 67 applications for police chief and will hire one of them within two to three months, said City Manager Mark Baldwin.
Friday was the last day the Martinsburg City Council accepted applications for the position Wayne Cleveland vacated in January to become chief in Hopewell, Va.
Capt. Ted Anderson has been acting police chief since Cleveland's departure.
Baldwin would not disclose where the applicants are from or if any were in-house because the hiring procedure is a personnel matter.
