Barbourville Mayor Darren West announced his choice Monday for the next Barbourville police chief.

Applying for the position were officers Steve Owens, Winston Tye, Randy Clark and Jake Knuckles.

“It was an incredibly hard decision to choose between all the great applicants,” said West. “However, one officer stood out as having the foresight of engaging the community through a show of police presence in and around the schools, as well as the community. I want our children to grow up not only safe, but with a positive outlook and show of respect for the local police department. I felt like this officer was the best candidate to take the department in that direction.”
