NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Mayor John Cooper has formed a committee to help narrow the list of candidates to be Nashville’s next Chief of Police.

Metro said in a press release Monday that it had received 57 applications for the job. Interim Police Chief John Drake is among them.

The mayor has chosen five individuals for the Police Chief Review Committee. They include Franklin Chief of Police Deb Faulkner, Community Oversight Board Director Jill Fitcheard, former TBI Director Mark Gwyn, former Nashville DA Torry Johnson, and Metro Office of Family Safety Department Head Diane Lance.

Mayor Cooper will invite the finalists to Nashville for in-person interviews during October. He hopes to have a new chief on the job by the end of next month.
