List for next BRPD police chief is now down to five names

BATON ROUGE —— The committee assigned with finding the next police chief for Baton Rouge has now narrowed its search.

The committee, that was made up of 10 people, went through all 20 candidates in the last two weeks. At four separate meetings, they went through five candidates each time.

On Nov. 2, after going through all the candidates, they narrowed their search down to their top five candidates.

-BRPD Captain David Wallace
-BRPD Sergeant and Director of the Training Academy Sharon Douglas
-BRPD Deputy Chief Myron Daniels
-Thomas Glover
-BRPD Commander Thomas (TJ) Morse, Jr.

The list will now be handed over to East Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, who makes the final decision to appoint Murphy Paul’s replacement.

She will have until Dec. 5 to make her decision. If she decides not to appoint any of the five, the entire process will start over.

Multiple credible sources have said from the beginning when Murphy Paul announced he was retiring that two people were the front runners: Sharon Douglas and Myron Daniels.

Now, both candidates along with three others, have made the list for the top five candidates to become the next police chief in Baton Rouge.
