Earlier this Morning, Ashland’s Town Manager Anthony Schiavi oversaw the swearing in by Ashland’s Town Clerk Tara Ward, of former Framingham Deputy Chief of Police Craig W. Davis, as Ashland’s new Police Chief.
The swearing in of Chief Davis culminates a six month effort that started with the selection of Badgequest as the Town’s search consultant. The search resulted in forty one applicants. The process consisted of the completion of assessment center examination and interviews. Chief Davis was nominated and selected to be the new chief.
Town Manager Schiavi met the new Chief at the Ashland Police Station at 7:00 AM this morning. Schiavi welcomed Davis to the department, along with other personnel. “Chief Davis arrived looking sharp and ready to hit the ground running” Schiavi said. Schiavi said he and the Chief will meet later this afternoon to start developing both near and midterm objective. Those objectives include a budget review, personnel hiring, and other issues.
Mr. Schiavi said that a public ceremony is in the planning stages within the next several weeks, and the public will be kept informed, and are encouraged to attend.
