FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - More than 50 people have applied to be Farmington's next chief of police.
    
The Farmington Daily Times reports that city records show among the applicants are current chiefs of smaller police departments across the country and high-ranking officers from larger police departments such as Chicago and Denver.
    
Also applying were federal agents, National Security Agency and military personnel, and employees of businesses that have contracted for national security work overseas.
    
Farmington Assistant City Manager Bob Campbell said the consulting firm Colin Baenziger and Associates was hired to recruit for the chief position.
    
Police Chief Kyle Westall recently announced he will retire at the end of the year after 25 years with the department.
