Town of Falmouth Appoints Interim Police Chief
Captain Edward Dunne will lead the Falmouth Police Department, taking over for retiring Chief Anthony Riello.
Falmouth Selectmen approved Dunne's appointment Monday, according to the Cape Cod Times. The move is just in time; Chief Anthony Riello retires next week.
Dunne joined the Falmouth Police Department in 1981 as a summer police officer and was promoted to captain in 2008.
The town will launch a search for a permanent chief early next year. Dunne told the Cape Cod Times he plans to apply for the position.
