MILLBURY, Mass. — Millbury residents will get a chance to meet and greet with the next chief of police from 7 to 8 p.m. Dec. 13 in the Large Conference Room at Millbury Town Hall.
The search has been on the past several months for the eventual replacement for Chief Mark Moore, who stepped down in November for health reasons after 30 years on the job. The town hired Public Safety Consultants, headed by the retired Shrewsbury police chief, to aid in its search for the next chief.
After sifting through many applications, the town has narrowed its options to a final handful of candidates. On Thursday, the process continues with a panel of town officials and select residents to ask questions of the final candidates from 6 to 7 p.m.
Then the public will be able to do a meet and greet with all the candidates for the chief’s position, followed by formal interviews with the Board of Selectmen. The choice will then be made Dec. 18 and the town should have its next permanent chief.
In the meantime, Sgt Donald Desorcy remains the acting chief. Desorcy also filled in from July-October 2011 when Chief Richard Handfield retired.
