Application deadline approaching for Pickens police chief opening

PICKENS — The deadline for applications for a new Pickens police chief is approaching, though city administrator Bruce Evilsizor hinted an extension is a possibility.

“We have a good number already,” Evilsizor said. “We just want to make sure we find a really good candidate for the city of Pickens. It may take more time.”

The application deadline is Sept. 4.

“It’s more about the process and how many interviews we have to do,” Evilsizor said. “We will be working on that end of things.”

The anticipated appointment date is Oct. 19, Evilsizor said.
The position became available after chief Rodney Gregory announced his retirement in June.
