Town moving forward in search for new police chief

In light of Dublin Police Chief James Letourneau’s announcement that he would retire in December, the town has begun its search for a new police chief.

On Oct. 15, Dublin Town Offices posted a job description for the position on its website, listing the town’s characteristics and what is desired in candidates for the position, including familiarity with “a command position” and “a history of progressive police experience.”

The town also put advertisements in the Ledger-Transcript, the Keene Sentinel, and the Union Leader between Oct. 17 and Oct. 20.

Applications for the police chief position are due to the town on Nov. 14, and then a Police Chief Search Committee will sort through potential candidates, according to Town Administrator Sherry Miller. The names of the search committee members, which were discussed at the Oct. 7 Select Board meeting according to the minutes, had not been released as of press time Monday.
