Hanover plans dinner to honor police chief
Giaccone went on medical leave mid-February after suffering a stroke. He did not return to work and instead retired from the position he held for the past 18 years last month, said Town Manager Julia Griffin.
A nationwide search for his replacement has just begun, Griffin said. The town hopes to bring on a new police chief by February or March.
“It’s always a daunting task replacing department head-level positions,” Griffin said, “But clearly when you have someone that has Nick’s breadth of knowledge and experience,” the task is even harder.
“Fortunately he’s still very accessible,” she said.
The dinner is planned for Saturday, Dec. 14, at 6 p.m. at the Class of ’53 Commons on the Dartmouth College Campus.
More information about the dinner can be found on the town website, Griffin said, at hanovernh.org.
