WILMINGTON, MA — In a change of plans, Wilmington Police Chief Michael Begonis will NOT be retiring anytime soon, according to a press statement released earlier today by Wilmington Town Manager Jeff Hull:
In January 2017, Police Chief Michael Begonis submitted a letter to me expressing his intention to retire in January 2018.
Chief Begonis and I met on November 6, 2017, during which time the Chief expressed a desire to remain in the position of Police Chief. Chief Begonis expressed his passion for the role of Police Chief and a desire to continue to work with the community to address a number of issues most notably the Opioid crisis.
In recognition of his nearly 30 years of service in the Police Department with the last 12 years of service in the capacity of Chief, I accepted his letter to revoke his intention to retire.
I look forward to continuing to work with the Chief as a valuable part of the Town’s management team, as we continue to pursue ways to ensure that Wilmington remains a safe and desirable place to work, live and raise a family.
