WHITEFIELD — Sgt. Rick Brown of Whitefield, a 1993 WMRHS graduate who started as a full-time police officer in his hometown after graduating in 1998 from the 155th state Police Academy, was sworn into his new position on Monday afternoon, Aug. 27, by town clerk Stephanie Glidden at the town offices.

After working for seven years at the Whitefield Police Department, Brown joined the Carroll Police Department, where he served for eight years, most recently as its Detective. The Carroll selectmen voted at their Aug. 13 meeting to accept his letter of resignation and to send a letter wishing him well and thanking him for his service.

Carroll Police Chief John Trammell said in a telephone interview that Whitefield is lucky to have Brown and that he would be missed.

Whitefield Police Chief Ed Samson III, who had recently vacated the sergeant's post when he assumed the top slot, explained that Brown had remained on the Department's roster as a part-time officer, allowing him to be interviewed and hired as an in-house officer. The WPD now has a fully staffed roster in place.
