BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Eleven candidates seeking to become Baton Rouge's next police chief have passed the two-part civil service exam.
The Advocate reports Sgt. Jonathan S. Dunnam and Capt. James G. Drickamer, both of the Baton Rouge Police Department, tied for the highest score at 91.
Interim Chief Carl Dabadie finished in the middle of the pack with an 84.
Sgt. Bryan Taylor, the chairman of the Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service Board who passed the test with an 82, said the scores will be forwarded to East Baton Rouge Parish Mayor-President Kip Holden.
Holden will choose the city's next police chief. Holden has not named a timetable for his selection.
The police chief's position opened in February after Holden fired former Police Chief Dewayne White.
