Police realignment could be on way for Williamsburg
WILLIAMSBURG,MA(AP)— Selectmen in Williamsburg could vote as early as today to approve a realignment of the town Police Department.
The change would eliminate the positions of part-time police chief, sergeant and full-time patrol officer and replacing them with a full-time police chief.


Selectman Christopher Morris says the town could avoid problems and save money by having a full-time chief.


Current Chief Patrick Archibald, is currently on an unpaid leave of absence, supports the idea of a full-time chief, but thinks selectmen are moving too fast to make changes.

:evil: I can tell you from personal experience the entire thing comes down to BULLS**T hilltown politics. :evil:

There are certian members of the selectboard who think it's great to enforce the law... :roll: as long as your not bothering a resident, or someone they know. On the same note I find it funny how often the Fire Department is shown in a glowing light at Selectboard meetings. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying they're not doing a good job. However it must be hard for the Chairman of the Selectboard a.k.a. Deputy Chief of the Fire Department to remain so... impartial :!: .

The supervisors they want to get rid of will not be easily replaced. They are among the most dedicated officers I have ever known.

If the "realingnment" :uc: goes as planned, the incoming "Chief" can plan on being a puppet for the Selectboard... or being replaced.


" :p For such a small town it sure has alot of A**$oles in it :p .

This sounds like a classic case of "Fixing something that isnt broke" just becuase a selectboard has too much thinking time on thier hands.
