Groton City Appoints New Police Chief

Thomas Davoren has 32 years of experience in law enforcement.

A Groton City Police Captain and former State Police trooper will be sworn in Friday as the city’s new chief of police, the mayor said today.

Thomas Davoren will be sworn in at 1 p.m. Friday in the Groton Municipal Building. The City Council approved the appointment Monday.

“The Council and I are very pleased that Tom has accepted the appointment and proud to have someone of his caliber and experience leading our police force,” City Mayor Marian Galbraith said in a prepared statement.

Davoren was appointed interim police administrator in Groton City in September 2011 and became captain in March. He spent more than 26 years with the state police, including posts as state police colonel and deputy commissioner of the department of public safety.

He’s received awards including two meritorious service medals, and outstanding police service medal and three unit citations. He has also attended the FBI National Executive Institute.

Davoren will supervise a department of 30 officers.

He succeeds Bruno Giulini, who retired last month, after 10 years.

Congratulations to your new police chief. You can help him out by asking him to review and affirm the 12 qualities necessary for police in our society to hold and practice at: http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/policing-our-nation.html. Also visit my blog on police improvement at http://improvingpolice.wordpress.com. (Those qualities are: Accountable, Collaborative, Educated and trained, Effective and preventive, Honest, Model citizen, Peacekeeper and protector, Representative, Respectful, Restrained, Servant leader, and Unbiased.) There also is a new book out that may be helpful in thinking about ways in which police can improve by someone who did it: “Arrested Development: A Veteran Police Chief Sounds Off About Protest, Racism, Corruption and the Seven Steps Necessary to Improve Our Nation’s Police” (Amazon.com).
