Jennifer Morrison was sworn in as the third chief of the Colchester Police Department in a 12:00 p.m. ceremony on July 29.
Colchester Selectboard representative Tom Mulcahy and Colchester Town Manager Dawn Francis offered remarks at the ceremony.
“Our incoming chief was chosen because of her strong community ties, her integrity, and her personal investment in the health of Colchester,” Mulcahy said. “I know she is eager to implement her vision for protecting our community in a collaborative effort among police and citizens alike, and we ask everyone to continue to support our police department in its efforts to safeguard all who live and work here.”
“In both her professional and personal life, Chief Morrison has exhibited tireless dedication to her community,” Francis said. “She brings to her position a wealth of energy and ideas with which—along with her officers and staff—she will advance the already excellent reputation of the department and its service to the community.”
Morrison, who succeeds Chief Charles A. Kirker, was a twenty-three-year veteran of the Burlington Police Department, most recently serving as deputy chief.
Welcome and congratulations, Chief Morrison!
