The Town of Plympton is pleased to announce that we are moving forward with the search for a permanent, full-time Chief of Police. The Town has acquired the services of Community Paradigm Associates from Plymouth, MA, to coordinate a professional search process. The position of Chief of Police will be posted later this week and we hope to have the position filled by June 1.
This marks a significant milestone for the Plympton Police Department, as the Chief position has been filled on an interim basis since July 2019.
During the search process, daily operations of the Police Department will be managed under the capable leadership of Acting Chief of Police Daniel Hoffman. Mr. Hoffman has been serving the Town faithfully as a Sergeant prior to receiving this temporary appointment.
We would like to thank the former Interim Chiefs who served us well during a transitional period, Matthew Clancy and more recently, Scott Benton. Over the last two plus years, tremendous progress has been made with respect to growing the Police Department, building an amazing team of men and women who serve the Town proudly and working towards accreditation.
