Wenham introduces new police captain

Police Captain Kevin J. DiNapoli

A “meet and greet” with newly hired Wenham Police Captain Kevin J. DiNapoli is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, at Town Hall, 138 Main St.

Formerly with the Hudson, N.H., Police, where he served for more than 20 years and held the same rank, DiNapoli was hired in late October to replace longtime Captain Jeffrey Tobey, who retired in January.

DiNapoli started as a patrolman in 1997 before becoming a detective in 2001, and climbed the ranks until becoming a captain in 2015.


“He was the top candidate in what was a competitive testing and assessment process,” said Wenham Chief Thomas Perkins in a statement, “and his experience and knowledge will be a tremendous asset to the department and the community we serve.”
