RED BANK, TN (WRCB) -

UPDATE: Thirteen people want the chance to be Red Bank's next police chief. 

City Manager Randall Smith said all of the applicants are either current or former law enforcement officials. He also told Channel 3 that there are five internal candidates and eight external candidates.

Applications were due at the end of June.

The applicants come from Florida, Indiana, and Tennessee.

The search comes after former Red Bank Police Chief Tim Christol was fired in May over "personnel issues."
