Calhoun Falls is expected to name three finalists for the job of police chief.
The Abbeville County town voted to dismiss the previous chief in November, leaving the department with just one officer.
The council voted unanimously to fire chief J.T. Galloway and no reason was given for the firing.
Councilwoman Mindy Rogers is quoted by the Index-Journal as saying, “”All I can say is that is was in the best interest of the town.”
Galloway was previously fired by the mayor in February 2015 before being rehired two months later.
