Strong vs. Weak Chief

18410 Views 15 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  BLUE BLOOD
Mass has the unusual system of "strong" chiefs (41/97) and "weak" chiefs" (41/97A). Yet I am having a heck of a time finding a resource that clearly defines the difference. Does anyone know of one? Thanks!

These are more examples of why Civil Service is important for police officers.

I am by no means saying Civil Service does not have it's flaws, but it is certainly better than a police chief making his decision's based upon his popularity with the Board of Selectman.

Let's have the Chiefs worry about other things than if the Board of Selectmen isn't happy they won't get their contract renewed !
