PART 3: Law Enforcement Series: Police Chief Scott Young of New Hampshire ~ Retired & Re-hired, A Heart to Serve & Mentor

Chief Scott Young, a U.S. Marine veteran, retired after faithfully serving 20 years as police chief in Stafford, New Hampshire. Retirement didn’t last long, though. Chief Young raised the bar with his example when, at the request of the Barrington, NH Police Department, he returned to law enforcement as a patrolman to help train and mentor new and ranking police officers,

Chief Young comes from a lineage of police officers, starting with his grandfather and uncles. Now he, two of his sons, and his brother continue their family story of service to our nation and their communities. His family history also includes generations of service as Marines and firefighters, with several continuing this tradition. What a gift Chief Scott Young and his family are!

But as much as Chief Young loves serving in law enforcement, he shares there’s something even more important to him.

What a privilege to share police officer Chief Young’s insights and wisdom regarding law enforcement, our nation, family, community, and more in this video interview. (Downloadable audio option included.) Enjoy!

  1. Officer Young shared a great comment in the interview. He said he couldn’t believe how a police officer could do what they without being a man or woman of faith. After letting that sink in for a few minutes, I think that applies to every maninstream occupation. A public school teacher, a factory worker, a banker, and a checkout clerk all have issues in their jobs. True some have more life threatening careers, but God designed society to function best with a biblical thought process. Any time we divert from a Christ-centered society, it breaks down.
    Great interview with Officer Scott!


  2. Always enjoy your guests, and your insights, Ms. Rachael. Thank you for sharing the chief and his message with us.
