Brady police chief position narrowed to 4 potential hires

The ongoing search to fill the recently vacated head position on the Brady Police Department was narrowed recently and four potential candidates are vying for the title of Brady Police Chief. Those indivuals are scheduled to go before the Brady city council next week for final interviews. According to city manager Merle Taylor who commented on the search Wednesday morning, “We first narrowed the applicants down to 14, but now four of those will be interviewed by the city council probably Tuesday morning (April 14). It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but that is when we tentatively have it planned to conduct the interviews. “Originally we started out with 73 people interested in the position,” said Taylor. “We took those applicants and narrowed them down to 14 and now four.” Taylor noted that with the exception of one of the four remaining applicants, all have retired with 22 or more years of service with some branch of law enforcement: police departments, Department of Public Safety, etc. The city manager and the city council have to jointly appoint an individual to assume the position, and once a decision has been made, the appointment will be made official in the coming weeks.
