Mike Broadhead has been in Riverton seven years

Riverton Police Department chief Mike Broadhead may soon announce his resignation.

He has been named the "sole finalist" for the chief of police position in Statesboro, Georgia, according to an article published recently in the Statesboro Herald.

The article indicates Broadhead intends to accept the job offer.

In a telephone interview Wednesday, Broadhead told The Ranger that he expects to receive an official job offer next week. Until then, he said he wouldn't comment on the situation.

Under the Georgia Open Records Act, Broadhead said, the city has to post the name of its chosen candidate for two weeks before officially making an offer.

After 14 days, Broadhead said he would take the next steps to announce his decision to the city and public.

Broadhead has been the chief in Riverton for seven years. He oversees a department of 41 employees.

Statesboro is a city of about 31,000 people.
