THE CITY OF RIDGELAND was planning to interview two applicants for police chief Wednesday, June 11, said Mayor Gene McGee.
“We have two in-house applications,” McGee said, but would not disclose the applicants on the record.
Ridgeland Police Chief Jimmy Houston is resigning July 24 to teach criminal justice at Holmes Community College. He has been chief since 2002, and previously served with the Jackson and Flowood PDs.
A new chief should be appointed by the time Houston resigns, McGee said in a previous story.
