Guilford Sgt. Jack Dunn Promoted to Lieutenant

Lieutenant Jack Dunn (third from left) was joined on Nov. 15 by (from left) First Selectman Joseph Mazza, Police Commissioner Martha Carlson, his wife Sinead Dunn, Chief of Police Thomas Terribile, and Police Commissioner Jeff Hedburg for a pinning ceremony.

The Guilford Police Department has a new lieutenant, but the man taking the position is anything but a new face in town. Jack Dunn counts 22 years of police service to the town, most recently as sergeant.

The new lieutenant spent more than two months training before being promoted and is thrilled that his hard work paid off.

"I was really happy. I worked really hard, going to school-they sent me down to the FBI academy for 10 weeks. I was thrilled when I got promoted and, for my family, I know they work hard, too, so for them to be here for me made it all that more special," Dunn said. "It was a very happy day for everybody."

Police commissioners, family members and loved ones, members of the Guilford Police Department, and First Selectman Joseph Mazza congratulated Dunn with his pinning ceremony on Nov. 15. (Dunn received the promotion on Oct. 24 from the Board of Police Commissioners. The following day he assumed his new position.)

"On behalf of the commission, congratulations," said Commissioner Martha Carlson. "We are thrilled. We went through an extensive process, fair and transparent, to make this promotion. We believe, as a commission, that the exact, correct person received the person."

Chief of Police Thomas Terribile acknowledge Dunn's devotion to the Guilford department over the years. Terribile, who was a sergeant when he first met Dunn, said this decision came down to picking someone who could assume the role of a leader. The chief said Dunn is now fourth in command at the department.

From Dunn's "quirky, funny personality" to his dedication to Guilford over the past two decades, Terribile knew Dunn was the right choice for lieutenant.

"It's kind of an honor to do this promotion. It's my job to start looking at future leaders of the department because I'm not going to be here forever. This is just one more step for Jack up the career ladder and he earned this," the chief said. "It's really an honor for me to promote Jack to the ranking lieutenant. It wasn't an easy task; he certainly had to do a lot of studying and he had a lot of competition, but he certainly superseded the competition and I think Jack's going to do a fine job for the department."

Terribile also cited Dunn's effort in getting promoted, saying, "One of the main jobs is training and it's really a difficult job?You're working on a schedule, you're working on a budget, and Jack excelled on that. He took on the training responsibility and did a great job with it. That was the first step that I saw a future leader for the department. Then, when we put him in the detective bureau, Jack took the bureau and ran with it. Jack did a lot of good investigations and he knows how to motivate his people and get the job done."

Mazza praised Dunn's work in Guilford, especially his response when dealing with emergency situations like Hurricane Sandy.

"I want to congratulate you on behalf of the Board of Selectmen and the town of Guilford. This is an excellent choice," Mazza said. "How do I know that? I think you were on the job for about a week with your new position and we had a hurricane and Lt. Dunn stepped right in and handled it like he was doing the job all along. I really appreciate that and this is just a testament to the service that you've given to the town of Guilford."
