The search committee
tasked with nding Duxbury’s
next police chief will havesome professional help.Town Manager RichardMacDonald has selected theWest Yar-mouth-based
rm Badge
-Quest to headthe search for anew Duxburypolice chief.
The rm will
work with asearch commit-tee MacDon-ald is forming to help guidethe search, although the townmanager has sole appointingauthority at the end of the day.Services the companyprovides include: compiling acommunity and police depart-
ment prole, recruiting can
-didates, screening and back-ground checks, and handlingthe interview and assessmentcenter process, according totheir web site.“We are committed to as-sisting you in identifying thebest possible individual withthe qualities necessary to leadyour police department,” thesite reads.BadgeQuest was foundedby former Waltham PoliceChief Stephen Unsworth. Heholds a Masters Degree inCriminal Justice and is a grad-uate of the FBI National Acad-emy, the FBI Law Enforce-ment Executive DevelopmentSeminar and the CommandTraining Institute at Babson.Under his leadership, theWaltham Police Department
became the rst in Massachu
-setts to be accredited.BadgeQuest had been in-volved in police searches in anumber of local communitiesrecently, including Pembroke,Stoughton, Southboro andFramingham.Pembroke Town Admin-istrator Ed Thorne had highpraise for BadgeQuest, whohelped his town with searchesfor a new police chief and lieu-tenant.Although Pembroke’sgovernmental structure is a bitdifferent (the Board of Select-men is the appointing author-ity, and the chief is a civil ser-vice position), Thorne said the
rm was helpful, particularly
in providing an assessmentcenter to supplement the civilservice test.“I think it’s a trend amongtowns,” Thorne said of the as-sessment center. “It was a greatexercise ... I enjoyed workingwith them.”
BadgeQuest denes an as
-sessment center as, “a power-ful candidate evaluation tool,consisting of a series of role-playing exercises simulatingchallenges that a police ex-ecutive can be expected to en-counter in his/her career.”“The cream rises to thetop,” said Thorne. “It reallyshows the ability of the candi-dates to think on their feet ...how they handle situations anddeal with the public.”Duxbury Board of Select-men Chairwoman Betsy Sul-livan said the involvement of 
a professional search rm like
BadgeQuest is a good thing
 –– even though such a rm
wasn’t used during the search10 years ago that picked De-Luca to head the department,and Sullivan was involved inthat search.She said that as Duxburyhas grown, they’ve had to han-dle town business differently.“In terms of our size, we’vebeen required to be more pro-fessional,” she said. “I thinkthe police department is a partof that.”Sullivan said police depart-ments now are confronted withproblems of ever increasingcomplexity –– what should thepolice’s role in the schools be,how should shifts be staffed,etc. –– and that means it’smore important than ever toconduct as thorough a searchas possible for Duxbury’s nextchief.“The law is constantly
evolving, this is your rst line
of enforcing the law ... that hasbecome even more complex.”Sullivan said she hopesthat the search process will becomplete by the beginning of the year.MacDonald said he hasreceived tremendous interestfrom citizens willing to serveon the committee, which willwork closely with Badge-Quest. He said there will be arepresentative from the Boardof Selectmen and the PersonnelBoard in the group, as well asa number of citizens-at-large.He envisions a seven-membercommittee.Sullivan said that having
an outside rm like Badge
-Quest that won’t bring “bag-gage” to the search process,Duxbury will be able to move
on from a difcult period in
the town’s history.“On whatever side of theissue you’re on, people aretroubled,” she said. “By get-ting someone like a Badge-Quest to get us focused on thefuture – it’s a good thing.”
MacDonald said the rm
will cost $14,900. The posi-tion will be advertised overthe next 4-6 weeks, and he es-timates it will be four monthsminimally before a new chief is chosen.
