On November 13, 2013 the Holliston Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to promote Officer Matthew Waugh to the rank of Sergeant.



Sergeant Waugh is a seven year veteran of the Holliston Police, coming to our department after attaining Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Criminal Justice from Westfield State University. During his time on the force Waugh has been a very active and productive member of the patrol division while holding numerous specialty positions such as Safety Officer, Elder Affairs Officer, and Medical Affairs Officer. In addition, he is a proficient and successful grant writer, and has taken on other tasks and assignments associated with union matters as a past local President of the collective bargaining unit, specific budgeting projects and performance based policing concepts. Lastly, and certainly of great importance to the department and the town, Matt has devoted a substantial amount of time and effort to community based initiatives to include National Night Out and the Holliston Police presence at Celebrate Holliston.

The department is proud of Sergeant Waugh’s accomplishments so far in his young career and they wish him the best of luck as he moves on to the supervisory ranks of this organization.
