Mary Butler will become the first female police chief in the city of Salem. Butler, who began work as a patrol officer in Salem in 1987 and rose to acting captain, was appointed chief last week by Mayor Kim Driscoll. Butler, who holds two bachelor’s degrees from Salem State, will be sworn in later this month. She will succeed Paul Tucker, who was elected as a state representative last fall. “Throughout her career, Mary has demonstrated the utmost integrity and professionalism in her approach to policing and true leadership in the department,” Driscoll said in a prepared statement. “I’m extremely excited and enthusiastic to have this opportunity to serve the city of Salem, its citizens, and the officers of this department,” said Butler.
