LITTLETON, Mass. — Amidst a townwide hiring freeze, the Police Department was given an exemption to hire two new officers.
Selectmen voted to approve Police Chief John Kelly's request to fill two open positions, bringing the department from 14 to 16 full-time officers adding two patrols -- one day and one 3-to-11-p.m. shift.
