Wellesley selectmen have promoted police Lieutenant Scott Whittemore to serve as the department’s next deputy police chief.
Police Chief Jack Pilecki recommended Whittemore for the job, and Whittemore was chosen by a unanimous vote by selectmen during the board’s Dec. 4 meeting, the department said in a statement.
Each member of the Board of Selectmen met with Whittemore individually, and Whittemore was publicly interviewed by the board Nov. 27, police said.
The promotion ceremony was attended by fellow members of the police department and Whittemore’s family. Nat Whittemore, the father of the deputy police chief, pinned his son’s new badge to his uniform.
Members of the Wellesley Police Department, including its Honor Guard, assembled outside the town hall to recognize Whittemore following his promotion.
Whittemore, who lives in Wellesley with his wife and two children, joined the department in 1996 after he graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology, police said.
He became a sergeant in 2001, and was promoted to lieutenant in 2013, police said.
Whittemore is the fifth person to serve as Wellesley’s deputy police chief since the rank’s inception with the department in the early 1990’s, police said.
