The city of Statesboro spent a little more than $44,500 on its two searches for a police chief in 2016 and 2017. With help from the consulting firm Developmental Associates LLC, the second search, costing three times as much as the first, resulted in the hiring of Mike Broadhead, due to start April 17 as the new chief. With a Georgia Open Records Act request to City Hall, the Statesboro Herald obtained records of the spending, ranging from Developmental Associates' already-known contract price, which was the largest single expense, down to doughnuts served candidates and the out-of-town professionals who helped evaluate them.
