Former Manchester Police Chief Now U.S. Marshal for N.H.
Former Manchester Police Chief Nick Willard is now New Hampshire's U.S. Marshal.
The Senate unanimously confirmed Willard as U.S. marshal for the state of New Hampshire on Tuesday.
The state's Democratic senators praised the move. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen says Willard's experience as police chief make him uniquely qualified, particularly his efforts to combat the opioid epidemic. Sen. Maggie Hassan said the new role is in keeping with Willard's dedication to keeping the state's communities safe.
“Chief Willard’s experience as Chief of Police of New Hampshire’s largest city makes him uniquely qualified for this role, particularly his efforts to combat the opioid epidemic and support children who have been exposed to violence," Shaheen said.
