Following televised interviews with the Board of Selectmen, two Milton cadets were appointed as Milton Police Department Patrolmen.
Kelli Little and Timothy Doyle were recommended by Police Chief Richard Wells Jr., at the Board of Selectmen meeting on Thursday, October 6, and conditionally approved pending medical and physical evaluations.
Little and Doyle were among four finalists, including Michelle Morawiak and Imraan Hosein, who were interviewed by the Selectmen on Tuesday evening. On Thursday, the Selectmen and Wells recognized the quality of the four candidates.
“I wish there were four jobs right now,” Wells said.
All of the potential patrolmen are currently part of the MPD cadet program where they work at the station as dispatchers. Though the program began in 1985, Wells said the job has become more involved as the position evolved from working a phone and a radio to operating a control center.
The cadet program has produced four lieutenants and former participants account for about a third of the police force, according to Wells.
The cadet program has also created very competitive job searches. Little was a finalist in the last round of hiring and appeared before the Selectmen for the second time on Tuesday.
Morawiak and Hosein may have a chance to follow in their fellow cadet’s footsteps, as two additional positions are likely to open soon.
