Interim Police Chief services

Posted in News

We are happy to support Massachusetts communities in need of an interim Chief of Police. We maintain a current list of properly qualified Massachusetts Police Chiefs- typically recently retired- who are interested in serving as your interim Chief. Familiar with police departments across the Commonwealth, we can help identify a seasoned veteran from communities of similar size and demographics. Employment agreements, salary and benefits are individually negotiated between the community and the interim Chief, and there is no administrative or service charge to our member communities for this important service. No one knows the pool of seasoned, available law enforcement executives better than we do. Please Contact Executive Director Mark Leahy at (508) 839-5723 to discuss your specific needs.
