The hunt is on for a new police chief in Vine Grove.
Mayor Blake Proffitt said Monday the city received eight applications for the position, which was advertised online and in The News-Enterprise.
Of those eight applicants, some are local while others are out-of-state, Proffitt said.
The field already has been narrowed to an unspecified number, he said, and the next step is to begin phone interviews. From there, the process will proceed to in-person interviews in front of the six-person selection committee, which includes Proffitt.
