PLYMOUTH -
The least-senior police officer who took the chief and captain Civil Service tests scored highest on both of them.
Lt. Bruce McNamee, a nine-year veteran of the force, tops both lists.
The most-senior officer, acting Chief Michael Botieri, is second in the chief's test, followed by Lts. John Rogers, Dana Flynn and Victor Higgins, the department's current acting captain.
After McNamee on the captain's list are Rogers, Lt. Antonio Gomes, Flynn and Higgins.
Town Manager Mark Sylvia will make two or three appointments from the lists.
The department is down one chief and one captain, but if Sylvia appoints Botieri as chief, he will need two captains.
If Sylvia appoints McNamee , Botieri will return to his captain's post, leaving one captain's job open.
Civil Service rules say the top scorer gets the job unless there is a valid reason for choosing someone else.
Botieri joined the force in 1985, became a sergeant in 1989 and has been a captain for the last 12 years.
McNamee has four years of supervisory experience in his nine years on the department.
Sylvia's decision is final under Civil Service rules.
Selectmen have veto power only over other department head appointments.
Selectmen and Sylvia want to take police and fire chief positions out of Civil Service, but have delayed the decision until spring town meeting.
Sylvia says he will decide on the promotions by early November.
