After 34 years with the Hopkinton Police Department and 3 years as its chief, Richard Flannery will be resigning at the end of the fiscal year in June.
HCAM reports that Flannery made his announcement during the public forum portion of Tuesday night's Board of Selectmen meeting.
"Flannery said that after much reflection and for personal reasons, he would not be renewing his contract. The chief will stay on through the end of the fiscal year and will officially resign on June 30, 2013," HCAM's report says.
Flannery will be working with Town Manager Norman Khumalo and the Selectmen to establish a candidate profile and begin working to fill the position during the remaining months of Flannery's time with the department.
