HARWICH – It was a room full of blues as police officers from near and far came to the Harwich Public Safety Facility on Sisson Road to observe the swearing-in ceremonies of officers ascending the chain of command.

Following the retirement of Deputy Police Chief Thomas Gagnon on April 6 after 33 years of service to the department, Police Chief David Guillemette conducted an extensive promotional selection process. Last Friday he introduced new Deputy Police Chief Kevin Considine, Lieutenant Adam Hutton and Sergeant Amy Walinski to the gathering. Guillemette praised the officers for their commitment to the community and the department over the years.

Surrounded by family, fellow officers and friends, Mary Maslowski, executive assistant in the town clerk's office, performed the swearing-in ceremonies.
