Two police officers hired in December resigned after their first day on the job late last month saying they no longer wanted to work in law enforcement.
Justin Bush and Robert Rego both submitted resignation papers on Jan. 29, which would have been their first day at the MBTA police academy in Quincy, Hudson Police Chief Richard Braga said. Both men said they were having second thoughts about becoming police officers. Rego, a former security guard, worked as a reserve officer for two years and Bush, small a business owner, for just about a year before they were hired as full-time police officers on Dec. 4, 2006, town officials said.
Braga said he will now seek to hire two replacement officers off the state’s civil service list.
