Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Ann Barnes says she will appoint a new youth crime czar in December.
Mrs Barnes says she has had 30 people who have shown an interest in the role vacated by Paris Brown in April. The teenager was forced to resign after offensive remarks she made on her Twitter account were uncovered by a national newspaper.
Miss Brown, 17, was the first youth crime commissioner appointed in the country earlier this year but lasted a matter of weeks after her social media activity was uncovered by the Mail on Sunday.
At the time Mrs Barnes said she still had faith in the role despite the controversy.
