Joined by his family, friends and fellow officers, Lou Ferraro took the oath of office as Shrewsburys chief of police at Monday nights council meeting. He had served as acting police chief since John Wilson announced his retirement early this year.
A 22-year department veteran and lifelong resident of Shrewsbury, Ferraro started his career as a patrolman and worked his way up the ranks as detective, detective sergeant and lieutenant. He assumes the role of top cop with an extensive list of commendations and a broad education in law enforcement under his belt, highlighted by time spent at the FBI National Academy.
About his new job, Ferraro told redbankgreen, I am honored to be serving the town that I grew up in.
