BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The search for the next Baton Rouge Police Department Chief moves forward after 22 applicants took an exam.
Exam results obtained showed two applicants marked as no-shows. An application moves forward in the hiring process if a candidate earns a passing exam score of 75%.
BRPD Commander Thomas Morse, Central Police Department Assistant Police Chief Clifton Ivey and BRPD Captain Chris Polito had the three highest scores out of all applicants who took the exam.
The plan, according to Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, is to hire the next chief of police in November. Chief Murphy Paul’s resignation was announced in July after five and and half years leading the department.
