The town will be undergoing a nationwide search, the Globe reported when Chase announced his retirement.

Roy, the former police chief in Orleans, was appointed to serve as interim chief over the department, which consists of 28 sworn officers and 10 civilian employees.

28 sworn officers and not one of them is capable of leading the department during the process? Sounds like Chief Roy is a $2,000 a week babysitter.
