ASHLAND, N.H. (AP) - The newly elected police chief in one New
Hampshire town is eager to get to work, but first he has to
graduate from the police academy.
Tony Randall is a licensed surveyor who on Tuesday was elected
the top cop in Ashland, a rural community of about 2,000 residents.
He's never worked in law enforcement but says his experience
running a business and dealing with people will help him police the
town about 40 miles north of Concord. He plans to attend the police
academy starting in September and has six months to graduate or
town officials will appoint someone else as chief.
Randall defeated two other candidates, both of whom have worked
as police officers. His police department has about 12 members.
