This police department has become disfunctional. There are good officers who are trying their best, but always have to watch their backs because the chief is very imature and unprofessional. It is my opinion that there indeed needs to be an outside and honest study done on the Barre police department. I beleive that spending $12,000 on such a study is in the best interest of the town.

I do recall before Jimbo there was Michael Ryder, God Rest his Soul. Who in my opinion is to this day still missed deeply for his leadership, pride, professionalism, dedication and friendly demeaner to the dept, the town and all [young and old]. As we all know bringing him back to run the dept. goes without saying.
Every Chief brings in their own ideas, qualities and many other things they seem fit to run a professional police dept.
You can spend $12,000 on a dept.study but why can't the selectment [voted by the people] live up to their own responsibilities. If they need some assistance it's right before their own eye's. The people of Barre themselves, bring them into the process. Set up a committee using various towns people to help evaluate the candidates, the dept. etc..
This all makes sense but it also is a major commitment by those involved and not to be taken lightly.
Hopefully, after the process everyone can agree or brought closer as to what the dept should be, how it should be run, and by whom. Afterall. everyone had a hand in it not just a select few.

check out the new chief.. he is fro barre, cares about this town, our children and the growth and protection of all residents.
he was trained 1st by jimbo, and his family grew up alongside michael ryders family.

chief demetropoulos has been an asset to our town since 1998, and his continued effort with grants, inter dept policies, and trainings, his approahable manner & his fair personality is exactly what this town needs to make a change and a positive surge into the future.

the proposed survey was to look at all what the former chief was doing and not doing.. it was warranted because this man was not chief material. in personality, in management and even as a personalable person.
the towns selectmen made the right choice to question his leadership at that time.
