Hooksett to announce Manchester officer as new police chief

HOOKSETT - The Hooksett Police Department has a new chief, Lt. Peter Bartlett of Manchester, the Union Leader has learned.

Bartlett will be announced at a special meeting tonight. It's expected Bartlett will be in attendance.

Manchester Police Chief David Mara said, "I think he's a great choice." He said Bartlett was well respected during his career in Manchester. "I

think he's just what Hooksett needs."

Bartlett has been with the Manchester Police Department for 21 years and has been the president of the Manchester Association of Police Supervisors. He will begin his work as Hooksett's chief on Jan. 7, 2013.

Hooksett's last police chief, Stephen Agafiotis, resigned after years of battles with town officials, including the police commission and town council.

He was put on administrative leave in September 2011 and then resigned Jan. 31, 2012.
