Town to require CORI checks

EAST BROOKFIELD - Selectmen decided Aug. 29 to implement a policy requiring a Criminal Offender Record Information, or CORI, background check for all new-hire employees and those who have not previously had such a check.

The board took the action on the recommendation of Police Chief William J. Cournoyer, who cited instances in other communities where employees have been found, after-the-fact, to have a police record.

"I just think it would be a good idea," the chief said. "It would be a good practice to check on everybody."

The School Department, Police Department and Fire Department already follow this policy, but selectmen said it has not been the policy for other town employees.

Chief Cournoyer also recommended hiring three part-time police officers, bringing the department to

four full-time officers and 11 part-timers. Selectmen approved hiring Ryan Kelly of Worcester, a part-time officer in Brookfield, and

hiring Kendall Perrault and Felix Ramos, both of North Brookfield and both part-time officers in North Brookfield.

The town's recycling center on Stevens Road will be open from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 1 and Sept. 8, to accept brush and tree debris left by the storm. It also will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Sept. 10 for that purpose.
