Police chief anticipates vacancy in near future

November 03, 2004|by BRIAN SHAPPELL

SMITHSBURG - Smithsburg Police Department Chief Michael Potter said he anticipates a possible vacancy on the force in the near future.

Potter said the process of interviewing and giving written tests to candidates has begun in case one of the department's two other officers leave to take another position. Potter did not name the officer in question.

Potter said any first-time officer would be required to attend a police training academy before beginning service in Smithsburg.

"The good news is one of the candidates is a police officer from another state, so he may not have to go to the academy," Potter said.
