Written by NH1 News on .
BARTLETT — Police Chief Janet Hadley Champlin who's career in law enforcement stretches back to the 1980's, is planning to retire.
On Monday, the Bartlett Board of Selectmen announced that the beloved Chief will be hanging up her badge on April 28, according to the Conway Daily Sun.
Champlin is well known for being the first female police chief in Caroll County during her time with the Bartlett Police Department. As chief she commanded four full-time officers and three part-time officers. The chief's position is considered part-time at 32 hours per week.
She also investigated Bartlett's former chief, Tim Connifey, who was later convicted on corruption charges.
Champlin, 56, will assist Bartlett with finding a new police chief.
