Mont Vernon picks Milford officer as next police chief
Milford Police Sgt. Kevin Furlong will become chief of the Mont Vernon Police Department on Dec. 16. Nancy Bean Foster
Detective Sgt. Kevin Furlong will take the helm of the Mont Vernon Police Department on Dec. 16, following a swearing-in ceremony at the weekly selectmen's meeting. Furlong was chosen out of a field of nearly 60 applicants, according to Jack Esposito, chairman of the board of selectmen.
"All three candidates gave very strong interviews and it was a very tough decision," he said, "but in the end we chose Kevin. We think he'll be a good fit for Mont Vernon."
In May, when Mont Vernon's former police chief Kyle Aspinwall retired from law enforcement, Furlong decided the timing was right to try and achieve his goal, and Mont Vernon seemed like the ideal place to start.
Furlong said he doesn't foresee any difficult challenges ahead in Mont Vernon because he's got a group of good officers and a well-established police department.
Esposito credited Aspinwall with creating the strong department Furlong will inherit, and said he believes Furlong will continue to carry the department forward in a positive way.
Furlong will earn around $67,000 as chief, Esposito said.
