Search on for next Shreveport police chief
Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover is interviewing 14 applicants for police chief, hoping to appoint a new chief by July 2.
The mayor's office says 17 people applied after Chief Henry Whitehorn was nominated for U.S. Marshal.
Only two applicants - Lake Charles Police Sgt. Mark A. Kraus and Bossier City Police Sgt. Larry Hawkins - are from outside the department.
Others have been in the department 14 to 30 years.
They include Assistant Chief Wayne Smith of the Support Division, with 30 years' experience, and Ronald D. Huddleston, an assistant to the chief with 20 years service.
