Mayor President Kip Holden will announce his pick for the new top cop in Baton Rouge AT 10AM Friday.

Holden spent the last two weeks interviewing the top 5 candidates for the job. The field had started at 30 - but the final 5 were recommended by the Police Chief Search Committee.

The announcment had been set for Wednesday - but the Mayor says he wanted to focus on the Mississippi Rising and personally thank the 4 other candidates for applying for the job.

Since Chief Jeff LeDuff stepped down - Interim Chief Charles Mondrick has been in charge of the department.

By law - he has to leave that position by the end of this month.

As soon as the announcement is made..we will bring it to you on here on NBC33TV.COM
