The list of candidates for the new permanent Baton Rouge Police Chief is down from 30 to 11.   The search committee has laid out a schedule to get the final list of candidates to the Mayor's Office next week.

The 22 member committee spent the morning reviewing the 30 applications of those who passed the Civil Service Exam.   After a vote, the 11 with the most votes will be interviewed next week.

They are: 

Troy Abbey,- California Highway Patrol

Rudolph Babin - BRPD Commander

Willard Bates - DEQ Criminal Investigator

David Cannon -  Cobb County, GA

Carl Dabadie - BRPD Asst. Commander

Carl Dunn - BRPD Commander

Jamie Fields - Former Detroit Chief

Todd Lee - BRPD Commander

Lonnie Lockett - BRPD Commander

April Overman - Former NOPD Officer

Donald White - LSP Commander

The 11 will be interviewed next Tuesday and Wednesday. When the interviews wrap up, the committee will narrow the list to 5, and send those to Mayor President Kip Holden's office.

By law, Interim Chief Charles Mondrick has to leave the position by the end of the month.

Andrew Capasso is tracking the story and will have more on the search and what's next tonight on NBC33 News at 5:00.
