Ten officers were promoted and a proclamation was issued to the retiring deputy chief Gerald D. Driscoll at Monday’s Narragansett Town Council meeting.
Driscoll was honored for his lifelong work with the department. He started with the department as a patrolman and at the time of his retirement, he was a deputy chief, second-in-command to Dean Hoxsie.
Following Driscoll’s retirement, which officially took place in November 2012, the council approved a reorganization of police ranks based on a recommendation by Hoxsie. The non-union deputy chief position was eliminated, and another captain unit was added.
Sean Corrigan was promoted from to this captain slot from detective lieutenant. Other promotions:
- Scott Perrin to detective lieutenant
- Matthew Sutton to lieutenant
- Anthony Pelopida to detective sergeant
- Robert Barber to sergeant
Kevin O’Connor, James Wass, Brent Kuzman, Keith Lagasse and Christopher Riley to patrolman
