MEREDITH — John Curran, former Meredith police chief, and former juvenile officer John Egan passed away Wednesday, both leaving powerful legacies in the Lakes Region. 

“It’s really devastating to lose these legends of law enforcement in Belknap County on the same day,” said Dan Collis, former Sheriff. “Under John Curran’s time as chief, he spawned many successful law enforcement officers that both stayed there and continued on their careers in various departments in the state, many of them becoming police chiefs.”
