47 apply to become Warrenton police chief

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
Staff Journalist
Warrenton’s town manager hopes to hire a new police chief by Oct. 1.

Brannon Godfrey received 47 applications for the position in seven weeks, leading to the June 30 deadline.

The new police chief will earn $92,806 to $148,490 annually, based on experience.

Mr. Godfrey declined to say how many internal or former town police department employees had applied for the job.

As part of the selection process, Mr. Godfrey will select up to six finalists for participation in a daylong “assessment” interview in early August.

Three panels will interview finalists.

The first panel will consist of approximately five citizens, nominated by town council members.

Mr. Godfrey will select three current Virginia police chiefs to serve on a second panel and three town or city managers to serve on the third panel.

Each panel will rank the finalists and recommend a top candidate during the daylong interviews.

Mr. Godfrey will interview the recommended candidate in August and make a decision for the new chief, who will serve under him.

Daniel V. Boring, 71, took temporary command of Warrenton’s 29-employee force in June.

Mr. Boring succeeded Louis Battle, who suddenly and unexpectedly retired as Warrenton’s chief in May.

The town police department has 29 full-time employees and an annual budget of $3.4 million.
