Beverly chief doesn't get Colorado job

BEVERLY — Police Chief Mark Ray said yesterday that he was not selected for the police chief’s job in Colorado for which he was a finalist.

Ray said he was notified Monday by officials in Lone Tree, Colo., that one of the other candidates would get the job. Ray was one of six finalists for the position out of 90 applicants, and the only finalist not from Colorado.

“It was an opportunity that presented itself that I found very interesting,” Ray said. “I take it as a learning experience. I hope to bring some of the things I learned through the process that can help me do a better job.”

Ray said he notified members of the Police Department and Mayor Bill Scanlon on Monday that he did not get the job.

“I thanked them for their patience and their support and told them I’m going to give them 100 percent in this job,” he said.

Ray, a 53-year-old Beverly native, has been the police chief in Beverly since 2007 and a member of the department since 1985. He was also a finalist for police chief last year in Portland, Maine.

Ray said he plans to talk with his family about their next step.

“Certainly, I’ll sit down and speak with the mayor if anything is to happen before it does,” he said.
