BREWER, Maine — There is a new corporal in town, but he’s a veteran officer with the Brewer Police Department after working for the agency for seven years, most recently as an investigator.
Nelson Feero is now Cpl. Feero and is leading the patrol officers. Cpl. Anthony Pinette has been reassigned as a detective, Police Chief Perry Antone has announced.
“It is with great confidence in their abilities as police officers that this assignment and promotion were made,” he said.
Feero has been with the Brewer police since September 2003.
“Since being with the Brewer Police Department Cpl. Feero has served as a patrol officer, school resource officer and most recently as a detective,” Antone said in an e-mail.
Feero is now a part of the department’s command staff and will work with the patrol division.
He was promoted and Pinette was made detective on Feb. 15. Pinnette joined Brewer in August 2001 and earned the rank of corporal in May 2006.
As a detective, “Cpl. Pinette will be assigned to criminal investigations occurring throughout the City of Brewer,” Antone said in his e-mail. “As the Chief of Police for the City of Brewer, I am extremely proud of both Cpl. Pinette and Cpl. Feero.”
With the addition of Feero, Brewer’s Police Department now has five corporals — Levi Sewall, Roger Hershey, Paul Gauvin and Pinette.
