ENNIS - Since the arrest and subsequent resignation of former police chief Kevin Hayes, the Ennis Independent School District has announced it will be taking applications for a new police chief.
Hayes officially submitted his letter to the district requesting he be released from his contract.
'We are taking applications for the school's police chief position,' said Dr. Eddie Dunn, the Ennis ISD superintendent.
Dunn went on to say he was unsure how far along in the process the district was, but wants to ensure the community the district was taking quick action.
'We want to hire a quality person for this important position,' said Dunn.
Hayes had been suspended with pay after the May arrest and had been working on a contractual basis because of the nature of his position.
Dunn did express his disappointment with the events which happened to Hayes, but said he did believe Hayes would bounce back from this unfortunate situation.
'By the end of the month we will have narrowed it down to the top two candidates,' said John Doslege.
'These will be handed over to Dr. Dunn and we will easily have someone hired by the beginning of the school year.'
According to Doslege, a three member committee will be making the decision on who will be the candidates sent to Dunn.
