BREWER, Maine — Officer Steven Boyd, who has been with the Brewer Police Department since 2006, has earned the title of corporal, police Capt. Jason Moffitt announced.

“Officer Boyd has excelled in his role as a school resource officer and has been the driving force in developing new programs designed to help the youth in our community, such as the first Public Safety Youth Academy in August of 2010,” he said in an e-mail.

In addition to Boyd, Cpl. Anthony Pinette, who was promoted to detective in February, has been promoted again to the rank of patrol sergeant, and Cpl. Paul Gauvin has been reassigned as a detective.

“Anthony is a certified firearms instructor who currently leads the firearms training program at the Brewer Police Department and also teaches at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy in Vassalboro,” Moffitt said.

Pinette joined Brewer in August 2001 and earned the rank of corporal in May 2006.

“Cpl. Gauvin has played roles as both K-9 officer and Drug Recognition Expert at the Brewer Police Department,” Moffitt said. “Corporal Gauvin’s K-9, Cierra, will be retiring as he begins his new duties.”

Gauvin was hired by the Brewer Police Department in 2001.
