I noticed that Wayland PD has posted for a Lieutenant position on the Massachusetts Municipal Association site. I was wondering if anyone had any insight as to why it was posted outside of the department?
According to the state website….Wayland is a Non civil service department. For all the “warts” that civil service comes with, this is what happens when you leave CS. I worked for both a CS and non civil service department. And I prefer the CS. I’m retired now so I have no “skin in the game”. But I will say that you have to be careful what you wish for. Hiring from outside can be devastating to morale. Just my take on it.
