Hallowell Police Chief to Retire After 33 Years with Department
According to the KJ, Hallowell Police Chief Eric Nason, who has been with the department since 1987, is set to retire in just a couple of months.
The department is looking to have a replacement hired by April 1st. The salary for the position is $64,760.
The population of Hallowell is 2,300 and there are 10 positions within the Hallowell Police Department. Those positions are three full-time officers, a patrol sergeant and five reserve officers. A reserve is an officer who works a part-time schedule.
Nason's career and character were called into question in 2014 when a female officer accused him of sexual assault. After a months-long investigation by Maine State Police concluded with no charges being brought forward, he was reappointed as chief in 2015.
