Gloucester Police Chief Sworn in as Vice President of Essex County Chiefs of Police Association
MARBLEHEAD — Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello was yesterday sworn in as the new Vice President of the Essex County Chiefs of Police Association
The Association, a round-table representing 35 Essex County police departments and about 100 associate members, meets monthly to discuss important policing and community issues. It also brings police departments together from across the county to support worthwhile causes, including the Jimmy Fund and Special Olympics Massachusetts.
“It is an honor to represent my fellow chiefs and members as Vice President of Essex County Chiefs,” Chief Campanello said. “Strong communication is one of our most valuable tools as police officers, and the Essex County Chiefs of Police Association helps ensure a constant flow of dialog among our nearly three dozen member departments.
Chief Campanello was sworn in at the December meeting yesterday with a new slate of officers including:
- President, Chief Robert Picariello (Marblehead)
- Vice President, Chief Campanello
- Treasurer, Chief Robert Barker (Rowley)
- Secretary, Chief Thomas Fowler (Salisbury)
The meeting was held at the Boston Yacht Club in Marblehead. The chiefs were sworn in by Essex District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett.
