Greenfield Police to replace longtime employee

GREENFIELD — The town’s police department is looking for a new management assistant who will take care of paperwork, work with the chief to apply for grants, and oversee the department’s clerical staff.

Christine Scott, who has worked for the department since 1994, has given her notice, and Dennis Helmus, the town’s human resources director, said the town would like to have someone in the position by mid April.

Helmus said Scott resigned, saying she is moving to California. She leaves the department making $46,500 a year.

Helmus said the pay range for the next person will be between $35,600 and $49,300, depending on their experience and whatever else is negotiated.

The position is full-time and salaried.

Helmus said Scott, who will leave within the next couple of weeks, works directly with the chief and command staff.

“She does all of the non-police work, like records, payroll, personnel records, grant maintenance, permits, and accounts payable, to name a few,” said Helmus.

“Christine has done a great job. The department is losing a lot of institutional memory.”
