City officials have now identified the three finalists for the job of Statesboro chief of police. They are Herbert Blake, currently chief of the Hendersonville Police Department in North Carolina; Saundra Rhodes, until recently chief of the Horry County Police Department in South Carolina; and Charles Sikes, former special agent in charge of the Statesboro regional office of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Anonymous input from Statesboro Police Department employees was used in developing the job description, and the city called on the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police to help review applications, Mayor Jan More explained in a July 24 guest column in the Herald.
