"165 earning passing marks"

Milford Daily News reports that 230 candidates took the test last week to get on the list for the Franklin Police Dept. They are looking to hire one more police officer to bring their total to 45. The decision to hire will likely be approved as part of the FY 2015 budget cycle which will begin with Finance Committee budget hearings in Mar/Apr and commence with a Town Council decision in June.

Pleased with the turnout on test day, Semerjian said the candidates’ level of experience could vary. 
"We may see people with extensive police experience, we may have part-time officers from other agencies, and we may have green candidates who have to be sent through the academy," he said. 
Not until the department receives an OK from the council on its request to hire one officer will it begin reviewing and winnowing down the list of candidates who passed the exam, which remains valid for three years. 
Already, the Police Exam Solutions test process has proven faster than the Civil Service system in terms of releasing results, Semerijian said. For results from the Civil Service exam, he said, the department would have faced up to a six-month wait.
