One officer promoted and one hired...

Officer Jon Coliflores and Sergeant George Labonte wait to take their oaths of office.

Tonight Officer George Labonte was promoted to the rank of Sergeant.  Officer Labonte has been an officer with the Town of Wrentham for more than five years and becomes the fourth sergeant on the Wrentham Police Department.  His promotion will bring a supervisor to the over night shift; a position left vacant for the last several years due to severe budget constraints.

Permanent Intermittent Officer Jon Coliflores is also being appointed as a full time police officer with the Town of Wrentham.  Officer Coliflores will replace the vacancy created by Officer Carreiro, who was re-hired by Fall River Police.  Officer Coliflores will attend the Municipal Police Academy this November.

A full crowd of onlookers cheered as the officers were sworn in.  Sergeant Labonte's badge was pinned by his father.  Officer Coliflores's badge was pinned by his wife with his young daughter looking on.
