Plaistow begins search for new police chief
The new chief will replace Stephen Savage, who died after a three-year battle with kidney cancer on July 11.
Kathleen Jones, who was the deputy chief under Savage, is serving as the department’s interim chief.
The review of the applications begins on Sept. 22 with initial interviews scheduled for mid-October and a final round of interviews scheduled for November, according to Town Manager Sean Fitzgerald.
“I have created a job posting and challenge statement and outlined a process,” Fitzgerald recently told the Board of Selectmen, which will ultimately have the final say on the hire. “At this point, we can advertise the position for 30 days, and I anticipate that we will probably receive a significant response.”
“Certainly, we have an in-house candidate that we all think very highly of,” said Fitzgerald. “We want to encourage everyone to take a look at the position. It is an important job.”
