Georgetown Police Chief Donald C. Cudmore Steps in as President of Essex County Chiefs of Police Association
GEORGETOWN — The Georgetown Police Department is pleased to announce that Chief Donald C. Cudmore stepped in as the President of the Essex County Chiefs of Police Association last week.
On Wednesday, Dec. 6 Essex County District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett swore in Chief Cudmore as the Essex County Chiefs of Police Association’s newest president during a meeting at the Black Swan Country Club in Georgetown.
The Association, a round-table representing 34 cities and towns in Essex County — including the Essex County Sheriff’s Department and the Essex County District Attorney’s Office — 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 of Massachusetts.
New officers in the Executive Board include:
- Vice President: Merrimac Police Chief Eric Shears
- Secretary: North Andover Police Chief Charles Gray
- Treasurer: Peabody Police Chief Tom Griffin
Chief Cudmore has served on the Georgetown Police Department since 1985, rising through the ranks before becoming Chief in 2013. He also previously served at the vice president and secretary of the Essex County Chiefs of Police Association.
“I am honored to represent the Essex County Chiefs of Police Association and its members,” Chief Cudmore said. “Our organization has long served as a leader in the Commonwealth when it comes to issues surrounding important legislation and charitable organizations. I look forward to continuing the great work we’re known for as president.”
