HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The City of Statesboro, Georgia is re-opening their search for Police Chief, a position for which former Horry County Police Chief Saundra Rhodes was a finalist.

“This decision is certainly not a reflection on any of the candidates, it simply demonstrates that we are in a very unique time as it regards the leadership of our police department,” states a news release from the City of Statesboro.

Rhodes was one of three finalists for the position out of more than two dozen applicants, and went through the interview process in early August.

“On behalf of the City of Statesboro, we would like to thank all of those who did apply, particularly the three finalists,” the release states. Rhodes and the other finalists are not precluded from re-applying to the job.

Rhodes began serving as chief in Horry County beginning in Sept. 2012 after serving with the department more than 23 years.
