Following the retirement of Chief Kyle Takajian on June 30, 2017, the Selectboard has completed a search and has chosen Jamie Calise, a 20-year veteran of the Warwick, RI Police Dept. to serve as our new Police Chief. Lt. Craig Danziger has served as Interim Chief since, with great skill and our true thanks.
Calise comes to Truro from a small city environment, with an extensive policing and legal background. Currently a detective commander and captain who manages 35 detectives, sergeants and lieutenants, he has worked in diverse areas of policing including internal affairs, patrol and administrative services. Calise is also a lawyer, admitted to the Massachusetts Bar Association in 2008, though his current status is inactive, according to state records.
June Update: Chief Calise will assume his responsibilities at a public welcome and pinning ceremony on June 28th at the Truro Community Center, 6:30-9:30 PM. All are welcome.
