Psych evaluations no longer needed to promote LPD

LINCOLN - Police officers in Lincoln will no longer have to pass psychological exams in order to be promoted, the Town Council decided on Tuesday night, but the tests will remain a part of the hiring procedure.

The Ordinance Committee discussed the ordinance amendment on Monday night, after the request was submitted by Town Administrator T. Joseph Almond by way of Police Chief Brian Sullivan.

The change will speed up the promotional process, and save the town $500 per test.

Up until now, Lincoln was the only municipality in the state still requiring such a test for promotions, Sullivan said in his written request to Almond.
