BATON ROUGE- The Police and Fire Civil Service Board decided to extended an approaching deadline for Police Chief applicants by about two weeks.

The original deadline, February 3rd, will be pushed back until February 15th to allow for more applicants to apply. So far, the board has received only five applications and said the extension will give the Mayor a larger pool of applicants to pick a Chief.

The current applicants are Lt. Carl Dabadie, Jr., Cpl. David Hamilton, Lt. Carl Dunn, Lt. Lonnie Lockett, and Tabatha Dunn. Members of the Civil Service board say most applicants will wait until the deadline approaches before filing their application. 

The position of Police Chief was vacated last year when retired Chief Jeff Leduff stepped down. Mayor Kip Holden named Charles Mondrick, a 32-year veteran of the force, as interim Chief until a new one is selected.
