Hull police Chief John Dunn promoted three officers to the rank of sergeant.
Edward Minelli and brothers Steven and Scott Saunders received their new badges in a ceremony on April 4. They will be assigned as shift commanders and receive additional duties in the 26-member department.
“Edward, Steven and Scott have worked extremely hard to get to this point in their careers,” Dunn said in a statement. “All three of the guys are from Hull and I am sure they will continue to serve their hometown with pride and distinction.”
Scott Saunders joined the department in 2004 and has been an acting sergeant since 2014. He runs the summer seasonal officer program, which brings in additional staff to help police the beachfront town during the busy tourist season.
Steven Saunders has been with the Hull police since 2012. He is a field training officer and also handles the department’s IT and records management system, which he is upgrading.
Minelli has been a Hull police office since 2014 and is one of the department’s firearms and active shooter instructors and a field training officer. He is a member of the Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council’s SWAT team.
All three new sergeants have master’s degrees in criminal justice.
