Pittsfield Police Chief Michael Wynn joined us here on "Slater and Marjo In The Morning" a few months back to talk about his upcoming retirement from the department.

During that conversation it was revealed that a routine doctor's appointment left Wynn with a desire to change up his life. He has certainly put his time in and plans on leaving some time in July.

On Thursday we learned that a new interim Chief has been named.

Mayor Linda Tyer is pleased to announce the appointment of Thomas C. Dawley, II as the Interim Chief of Police for the Pittsfield Police Department (PPD).

“I am so honored that Captain Dawley accepted this interim appointment and I am confident that he will successfully lead the Pittsfield Police Department through its transition,” said Mayor Tyer.

Dawley has served as a member of the PPD since November of 2002 and currently serves as the Detective Bureau Captain. He earned a Master's in Criminal Justice from Boston University, and his Bachelor's Degree from Western New England College.

Dawley’s interim assignment will formally begin at some point in the future. Chief Wynn remains the chief and in full command of the department.

Mayor Tyer will join us on-air on Wednesday of next week to discuss this and other city news.
