Mansfield Police Chief Dino Sgambellone made the surprise announcement at the end of Wednesday's METRICH annual meeting that he plans to retire in mid-November. He gave no further details and declines comment, but he has been offered the job of police chief of Los Alomos County in New Mexico, and has accepted the job. Mayor Tim Theaker says the announcement was the first he's heard of Sgambellone's plans, and has not yet talked with him. Sgambellone's hiring in Los Alomos is contingent upon him passing physical and psychological exams, and the approval of the county council which votes October 29th. In the meantime, Mayor Theaker must prepare for the process of hiring a new police chief, with four officers qualified to apply. Those four are Deputy Police Chief Tobie Smith, Captain Ken Coontz, and John Wendling.  Los Alomos County Administrator Harry Burgess says along with the health exams, Sgambellone would have to get a security clearance because the national laboratory, where the atomic bombs dropped on Japan to end World War Two were made, is in Los Alamos.   Burgess says there were forty appliants for the police chief's job, with five interviewed, and Sgambellone is the only one he's recommending to the county council.  None of the appliants were Los Alamos police officers.  Sgambellone would oversee a staff of 50 officers and 25 others, including those who work in records, animal control, and the county jail.  His salary is set at $135,000.
