No extension deadline set in search for police overseer

        No decision was made Friday about how long officials will extend the search for a director to oversee Cincinnati's new process for investigating and tracking citizen complaints against police officers.

        City Manager Valerie Lemmie said a new deadline has not been set and until a date is final, the city will continue to accept applications.

        “We will extend the time line in order to ensure we get a wide breadth of candidates,” she said.

        The original deadline was Aug. 23, but the city extended it indefinitely after concern arose over the way applications were solicited and who will ultimately be selected to oversee reforms required by the U.S. Department of Justice.

        So far, 27 people have applied for the job, which pays $86,952 to $117, 385 annually. One applicant, WCPO-TV reporter Laure Quinlivan, withdrew her name from consideration. Of the remaining 26 applicants, all but two have legal backgrounds, careers in law enforcement or degrees in criminology. The applicants are:
