Edgewood narrows police chief list to 7

        EDGEWOOD — This Northern Kentucky bedroom community hopes to hire a new police chief within 10 days.

        The city received 61 applications from 28 states and the District of Columbia.

        The pool of candidates was narrowed to seven by Mayor John Link, City Administrator Roger Rolfes and the Northern Kentucky Area Development District, hired to conduct an executive search. NKADD is a resource agency for local governments and social-service organizations.

        City officials would not release the names of the finalists interviewed.

        The new chief will oversee a department with an annual operating budget of more than $1 million and 11 officers responsible for patrolling the 4 1/2-square-mile Kenton County city.

        The position pays $54,000 to $64,000, depending on the applicant's qualifications and experience.

        The chief's job became vacant with the retirement of veteran law-enforcement official Steve Vollmar.

        Sgt. Rob Bayer has been interim chief in Edgewood since Chief Vollmar's departure.
