WESTBOROUGH – The first steps to replace Jeff Lourie as Westborough’s police chief will be taken this week.

At its meeting on Tuesday, June 13, the Select Board is scheduled to consider the appointment of Deputy Chief Todd Minardi as interim chief.

The board will also discuss the process for hiring a new chief.

The meeting will start at 6 p.m.

According to an article in the Cape Codder on Thursday, June 8, officials in Falmouth announced that Lourie will become that town’s new police chief.

Lourie, who beat out two other finalists, will take over for Edward Dunne, who has retired. A start date has yet to be announced.

Lourie has been Westborough’s chief for the past five years.

Before that, he had been chief for the Uxbridge Police Department.

Overall, Lourie has been involved in police work for 34 years. He started as an officer in Shrewsbury, then as a detective bureau commander in Auburn before heading to Uxbridge.

The Advocate has reached out to Westborough Police and to Town Manager Kristi Williams for further comment.
