Town seeks new police chief

March 9, 2013

BURRILLVILLE — The town is ready to begin the process of searching for its next top cop.
Over the course of the next two months, Burrillville will be looking for a new police chief to succeed retired Police Chief Bernard E. Gannon, who led the department for the past 15 years. The chief's post is currently being held by acting Police Chief and Executive Officer Lareto P. Guglietta Sr.
The search process will officially kick off with the formation of an ad-hoc committee whose job will be to work with Town Manager and Public Safety Director Michael C. Wood to screen candidates.
At the Town Council's meeting last Wednesday, Councilmen Wallace F. Lees and Stephen N. Rawson were nominated by their colleagues to serve on the ad-hoc committee, which also will include members representing the Rhode Island State Police and Rhode Island Police Chiefs Association. The ad-hoc committee will begin its work in the next few weeks with a goal of forwarding its candidate recommendation to Wood by the end of April.
The committee will screen and rank candidates for Wood who, as public safety director, will interview the hopefuls and appoint a finalist for consideration and approval by the Town Council.
