Manchester Police Chief David Mara not offered post in Somerville, Mass.

MANCHESTER — The city of Somerville, Mass., has chosen to go with one of its own over Manchester Police Chief David Mara for that community's vacant chief post.

A press release issued Wednesday by Daniel DeMaina, media manager for Somerville’s communications department, stated that David Fallon, the current Somerville police deputy chief of operations, has accepted an offer from Mayor Joseph Curtatone to become the city’s new chief.

Curtatone will formally request the confirmation of Fallon’s appointment at the next regular Board of Aldermen meeting on Aug. 28, the release said.

Mara and Fallon were the two finalists for the position.

Mara has spent nearly 30 years with the Manchester police department and became chief in April 2008.

He served as a patrol officer from 1986 to 1995 before obtaining his law degree from the New England School of Law.
