HULL — Chief John Dunn is pleased to announce that three Hull Police officers were promoted to the rank of sergeant Thursday night.
Edward Minelli and brothers Steven Saunders and Scott Saunders were promoted at a badge pinning ceremony at Hull Town Hall last night.
The three will be assigned as Shift Commanders to various shifts within the department and will receive ancillary duties in the coming weeks and months.
“Edward, Steven and Scott have worked extremely hard to get to this point in their careers and I congratulate them on their promotions,” Chief Dunn said. “All three of the guys are from Hull and I am sure they will continue to serve their hometown with pride and distinction.”
