The search continues for a police chief in the city of Leesburg after long-time Chief Charles Moore died back in May.

Since Chief Moore's passing, Major David Bullington has resided as the interim chief over the police department.

According to City Manager Bob Alexander, the city began looking for applicants for the police chief role about three weeks ago.

Since then, City Hall has received a total of 25 applications.

According to Alexander, the committee will begin narrowing down applicants and interviewing candidates in the near future.

He adds whoever is chosen will have large shoes to fill.

"He just was the type of guy that everyone knew and trusted and that's what we're looking for," said Alexander.

You have until this Friday, July 13th to apply if interested in the position.

Alexander is asking applicants to bring by a resume to City Hall on Walnut Street next to the police department.
