- Changes at the Tilton Police Department
In the last few weeks there has been a lot of staffing activity at the Tilton Police Department. Some of these changes were expected, and some not expected. Chief Cormier retired, followed by Captain Martin and Lt. Morrison. All three of these employees have served the town for many, many years and each have made positive contributions to our community.
Prior to those retirements, we saw one of our detectives, an officer, and a dispatcher accept positions at the Belknap County Sheriff's office; one of our other detectives accepted a similar position in Plymouth; and our Attorney Prosecutor accepted a position in Concord. We wish them all well with these career moves.
As with any organization, staffing changes happen and for a variety of reasons. Our changes happened within a short period of time, and while those people who served the town will be missed, there are no positions that cannot be replaced. The board of selectmen hired an interim police administrator, and an interim Attorney Prosecutor. We believe we have the proper combination of knowledge, skills and leadership in our interim administrator to bridge to a full time Chief. In addition, the Attorney Prosecutor is an experienced prosecutor who serves other small towns and has hit the ground running. The Town is in the process of recruiting new officers as well as a full time Attorney Prosecutor.
Our new police station is set to be completed later this month, and everyone is working hard to make sure the transition to the new building goes smoothly.
