Promotion Ceremony

June, 2018

Sergeant Matthew Poulicakos

On Monday, June 4, 2018, the Hollis Police Department conducted a promotion ceremony at the Board of Selectmen meeting. On this night, we promoted Matthew Poulicakos to the position of Sergeant. Sgt. Poulicakos will start in his new position on June 9, 2018, and will be assigned to the Patrol Division. We are incredibly proud of Matthew and his achievement and know he will work hard to further the mission of the Hollis Police Department. We wish Matt much success and many blessings as he starts a new chapter in his law enforcement career.


The Hollis Police Department would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to complete this survey about crime and policing in the Town of Hollis. This is our second survey designed to provide a current understanding of the perceptions and wishes of the community and to recognize if these attitudes are changing. The results are used to enhance policing services and to direct the department as we strive to provide the most responsive, cost efficient, and compassionate police services possible. Your answers are completely confidential and your identity will not be known. Please select the response that best represents your opinion. Your participation in this survey is voluntary and all data will be compiled by an independent party before being forwarded to me for review.  Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey and if you have any questions, please contact Lieutenant James Maloney at 603-465-7637 or via email at jmaloney@hollisnh.org.

On April 16, 2018, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen Mark LeDoux, Selectmen David Petry, Selectmen Frank Cadwell, and Selectmen Peter Band, conducted a swearing-in ceremony for the two newest members of the Hollis Police Department, Probationary Police Officers Nicholas McPhee and Derek Gyles. PPO McPhee and PPO Gyles were joined by their family and friends as they took their oath of office, administered by Chairman LeDoux.

We are excited and honored that PPO McPhee and PPO Gyles chose the Hollis Police Department to serve in this honorable and noble profession, and we pray for their continued safety and success as they embark upon their law enforcement career. 

On April 30, 2018, PPO McPhee and PPO Gyles will begin the 176th session of the New Hampshire Police Academy, which will last 16 weeks.

Here are some photographs from the night's event.

We are proud and excited to announce that the Hollis Police Department completed its assessment for national accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The three-day assessment marked the completion of a three-year process working towards this gold standard for law enforcement agencies. The two assessors who visited the Hollis Police Department will now prepare a comprehensive report detailing their findings, which will be forwarded to the CALEA Commissioners for review. We are hopeful that we will be awarded with national accreditation at the CALEA Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan in July 2018.

We would like to thank all of the members of our wonderful community who expressed their support to us throughout this process. We are truly grateful to have such a supportive community and are committed to providing the best and most professional levels of police service to all those who visit or call Hollis home.

Accreditation Assessment Team

Invites Public Comment

A team of assessors for the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), will arrive on March 19, 2018 to examine all aspects of the Hollis Police Department's policy and procedures, management, operations, and ancillary services.

Verification by a team of two assessors that Hollis Police Department meets the Commission's state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation - a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session Tuesday March 20, 2018 from 5:00pm until the end of commentary.  The session will be conducted in the Community Room at the Hollis Town Hall located at 7 Monument Square.

If for some reason an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, he/she may do so by telephone.  The public may call (603) 465-2400 on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 between the hours of 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm. 

Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with CALEA's standards.  A copy of the standards manual is available for viewing at the Hollis Police Department by contacting Lt. James Maloney at 465-7637 ext. 249.


Persons wishing to offer written comments about the Hollis Police Department's ability to meet the standards for accreditation are requested to write: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Blvd. Suite 320 Gainesville, VA 20155.

On Friday, January 19, 2018, the Hollis Police Department welcomed Accreditation Assessors from the Northern New England Police Accreditation Coalition (NNEPAC). Assessors from NNEPAC assisted the Hollis Police Department with evaluating their progress towards national accreditation. This 'dry run' of sorts will allow our agency to better prepare for the on-site assessment that will occur from March 19 through March 21, 2018. We are hopeful that following our on-site assessment in March, we will be awarded National Accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).

If you would like further information about the CALEA Accreditation process, please feel free to contact Lt. James Maloney at 465-7637.
