Grantham residents and Law Enforcement Officials gathered last evening to say thank-you to retiring Police Chief Walter A Madore. Madore will finish his 27 years in law enforcement at the end of his shift today (Friday July 7).
Madore joined the Grantham Police Department as a part-time officer in January 1990. In 2005, he graduated from the 136th NH Police Academy and became a full-time officer. He was appointed as Police Chief in 2008 after serving in the roles of Captain and Deputy Chief. He was presented with a plaque with a past and present Grantham Police Patch, his badge from Grantham and his badge from the NH Chiefs of Police, in addition to a rocking chair and a gift certificate for years of golf at Eastman Golf Course.
