“I realized I was pretty unhappy with the way that I felt, and the cancer kind of kickstarted me,” he said. “I always wanted to become a cop, and I figured, if I don’t do it now, I probably never will.”
“He was the most qualified candidate out of the group, especially based on his experience being a part-time officer, and his people skills were really strong, I suspect as a result of his previous experience in sales,” said McGillen.
Though he has previously applied on several occasions to larger departments, such as Manchester and Nashua, he said getting hired in Candia has been a blessing.
