Georgetown Police Chiefs

GEORGETOWN — Georgetown resident and Rowley Police captain David Sedgwick will be sworn in as police chief here at 4 p.m. on Thursday.
He will succeed Chief Don Cudmore, who has been a Georgetown police officer for 39 years and chief for more than 10 years.
Sedgwick, 54, joined the Rowley department 30 years ago this week. During those three decades, he has distinguished himself with both his community service and his police work.
In 2015, he was recognized by the city of Newburyport for disarming a suicidal man with a gun. Ten years earlier, he saved the life of a 16-year-old, which earned him a Ribbon of Commendation. He rescued an individual suffering from hypothermia from the marsh in 2001. And he was recognized for his work in Boston and Watertown in the aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing.
He has also helped raise money for various causes in Rowley and developed and directed the Visit with Santa program.
Sedgwick and Cudmore are both graduates of the 10-week course at the FBI National Academy, which represents the top 1 percent of law enforcement executives from around the world. Sedgwick also studied law enforcement in numerous colleges and universities.
Cudmore plans to continue teaching at Merrimac College and the Municipal Police Training Academy and use his retirement time to follow his passion for restoring boats and reducing his golf handicap. He said he is fortunate to have served the Georgetown community.
