Dennis Police welcome two new officers
SOUTH DENNIS - The Dennis Police Department is pleased to announce the appointment of two full time police officers, James Brown and Kristian Oberg, to the department as both were sworn in on Monday by Dennis Town Clerk Terri Bunce. These two appointments fill vacancies that were created in the fall of 2011 when two department members moved to positions with other police agencies.
Officer Brown, who was a self-sponsor graduate of the 2010 Randolph Police Academy, was employed as a reserve officer on Martha’s Vineyard, where he worked in that capacity for three different police agencies. In addition, during six years of military service Officer Brown was deployed three times overseas and earned many meritorious honors, including the Medal of Merit, the highest award a National Guardsman in the Commonwealth can receive, from Governor Patrick.
Officer Oberg had been working as a full time police officer in New Brunswick, Maine prior to joining the Dennis Police Department. He is a life long resident of Sandwich and a graduate of Westfield State University.
