Lt. Karlowicz appointment

On Monday, November 22, The Dudley Board of Selectmen appointed Sergeant Marek Karlowicz to be the next Dudley Police Department Lieutenant.  Pending successful completion of the employment conditions package, the new lieutenant will assume his duties on January 7.  
In addition to Sergeant Karlowicz, three other members of the department, Sergeants Dean Poplawski and Paul Ceppetelli, and Detective James Annese, completed a written examination and participated in a day long promotional Assessment Center. The process included several real-life exercises designed to challenge them and determine their ability to perform in this management position. All four successfully passed and Chief Wojnar congratulates them all and recognizes this significant accomplishment.  
Marek Karlowicz has been a Dudley resident for most of his life, after emigrating here with his family from Poland.  He has been a member of the Dudley Police Department for 21 years.  He was appointed as a reserve officer in November of 2000.  He became full time in November of 2002 and was appointed to sergeant in July of 2019.  He serves in several roles within the department, including as a firearms instructor.  He will make a fine lieutenant with the department. This position has been vacant for over sixteen years.  
Chief Wojnar thanks the Board of Selectmen and Administrator Jonathan Ruda for supporting this position and the further advancement of the police department.
