New police chief introduced


Norwood will have a new police chief come May 1, the day after the retirement of current chief Bartley King. William Brooks, a former Norwood officer and current deputy police chief in Wellesley, has been chosen and was introduced to the public at a Board of Selectmen meeting Feb. 7. Brooks previously served in the Norwood Police Department for 18 years, and General Manager John Carroll said he was the strongest of four candidates. “I wanted to appoint somebody I knew,’’ Carroll said. “We’ve known Bill for a long time, and he has a great deal of experience.’’
