Selectmen Appoint New Police Lieutenant

by Bobby Blair
April 6, 2018

Sgt. Chad Thompson (below) became the latest member of the command staff at the Holliston Police Department beating out three other local police sergeants including Ken Belson, Matt Waugh and George Leurini for an open police lieutenant position. The quartet of would be candidates had each been interviewed earlier in the week by selectmen at an open board of selectman meeting. Both the police department and the board of selectmen held independent assessment tests to find the best qualified candidate.

The choice of Thompson to fill the lieutenant slot vacated last year by David Gatchell came on Friday afternoon after a brief twenty minute discussion in the selectmen's room at town hall. Chief Matt Stone and Lt. Craig Denman attended the meeting which was open to the public. Chairman Kevin Conley split from his colleagues in supporting Matt Waugh for the position, while Mark Ahronian and Jay Marsden voted for Thompson's appointment.  Thompson will be sworn in at the next Monday night meeting of the board but will not assume his duties until later in the month due to staffing issues. Those issues are being addressed as new officers come on board during the spring and summer months.

Thompson at his Monday night interview suggested to selectmen that he would like to reinstitute the policing of commercial vehicles coming through town.

Beware truckers! and Congrats Lt. Thompson.
