Manchester police seek candidates for March exam
While three of the most recent retirements were of upper level officers — two captains and a lieutenant — officers leave for a variety of reasons and Mara wants to be prepared when he finds himself with openings and the budget to fill them.
Names remain on the approved applicant list for a year, and there are some candidates left on a list that expires in May. But Mara has high hopes for increased diversity in the potential officers who will emerge from the entry-level police exam March 22 at the Police Standards and Training Academy in Concord.
The application deadline for the exam is March 18. Applicants who pass the written portion of the exam will immediately begin the physical agility test.
