BANGOR, Maine — A nearly 10-year Bangor Police Department veteran has a new rank and has been assigned to the patrol division as a first-line supervisor, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Thursday in a press release.
Detective David P. Bushey of Hermon was promoted Thursday to the rank of sergeant, the release states.
“Sgt. Bushey possesses a vast amount of law enforcement knowledge and experience; this combined with his personality and professionalism makes him an excellent choice for this promotion,” Interim Police Chief Peter Arno stated in the release.
Bushey joined the department in early 2003 after four years with the U.S. Coast Guard, two doing counterdrug enforcement, and earned an associate degree in 1996 from the University of Maine.
He was assigned to the patrol division for five years and was reassigned in March 2008 to the department’s Criminal Investigation Division as a detective.
As part of his new duties, Bushey also will oversee the department’s field training program for newly hired officers.
