New officer sworn in

Posted by Martin Finucane March 10, 2007 08:47 AM


Todd Holbrook was sworn in as a patrolman at Monday’s Board of Selectmen meeting. Holbrook graduated from the MBTA Transit Police Academy in Quincy on Feb. 23.

Police Chief Edward Merrick said Holbrook has worked for the department since 2002, serving first as a dispatcher and then as a part-time officer. Holbrook’s wife pinned his badge onto his uniform after he was sworn in.

Merrick also praised Officer Matthew Webber, who recently received the "Drive For Life" award from Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Webber was responsible for making over half the department’s arrests for drunk driving in 2006.
