Marlborough – Mayor Arthur Vigeant and the City Council recognized three promotions and three new hires in the Marlborough Police Department at the Council’s meeting on July 22. Four of the six officers were attendance and received a standing ovation in the Council Chamber.
Sergeant Daniel Campbell has been promoted to Lieutenant after 13 years with the Police Department.
“I started young and it’s a great place to work,” Campbell said.
Patrol Officers James O’Malley and Scott Carey were both promoted to Sergeant. O’Malley was on hand for the announcement and has been with the Department for 12 years.
Officer Alexander Nevarez joined the Department and was sworn in several weeks ago. Nevarez said he was previously an officer at UMass/Boston.
Kyle Skagerlind was hired as a patrolman. He said he had just finished at the Police Academy and previously worked in the private sector in Marlborough and “knows the area well.”
Not present at the Council meeting were newly hired Officer David Tinglof and newly promoted Sergeant Scott Carey.
“I know that you’ll do everything that the city of Marlborough asks of you and will always be a credit to the city of Marlborough and protect us well,” said Council President Edward Clancy.
