Town Administrator Steve Fournier announced the appointment of Kyle True as Chief of Police of the Newmarket Police Department to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Police Chief Kevin Cyr last month.
A law enforcement veteran with over 24 years of experience, True is currently serving as Interim Police Chief of the Newmarket Police Department. He has served the Town of Newmarket since 1997, rising through the ranks from patrol officer to Master Detective to Lieutenant. During his time as Master Detective, he served on the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force, working nearly six years undercover on drug cases throughout the State and the Country. During this time he received numerous awards from the United States Organized Crime Task Force and was named Newmarket Police Officer of the Year in 2004.
In 2005, True was promoted to Lieutenant in the Newmarket Police Department overseeing the Support Services Division. There he was responsible for all criminal and special investigations, prosecutions, youth services, and special programs. He has been in the forefront of community policing in Newmarket working with Child Advocacy Center to assist the young victims of sexual assaults and working with the Newmarket Alliance for Substance Abuse to address the opioid issues in the community.
True began his career in 1991 in Center Harbor, NH near his hometown of Meredith.
Town Administrator Steve Fournier stated “I am happy to announce Kyle’s appointment as Chief of Police. His breadth of knowledge of police services, his commitment to the community and to the Newmarket Police Department easily made him the top choice for the job. He is a great asset to the Town of Newmarket and I look forward to working with him for many years.”
In his personal time, True enjoys the outdoors, golfing, hunting, fishing and swimming. He relaxes by playing his acoustic guitars and riding his Harley Davison motorcycle.
