Northborough Police welcome new officers

Northborough-large-web-iconNorthborough – The Northborough Police Department will have two new officers in January, according to Police Chief Mark Leahy. They are Michael B. Prizio, 26, of Auburn, and Thomas R. McDonald of Shrewsbury.

Prizio holds an undergraduate degree in accounting and a Master's degree in criminal justice. He is a graduate of Worcester Police Academy's basic training course, and has served as a reserve officer since May 13. He will begin in his new role in Northborough Jan. 1.

McDonald holds a Bachelor's degree in psychology. He was raised in Northborough and is an Algonquin Regional High School graduate. McDonald has been a full-time dispatcher in Northborough since 2007, and will start his new position Jan. 10.

Police began the recruitment process over the summer. Dozens were vetted with a written exam in July, with the top 40 candidates going on to participate in a physical fitness test. Top tier candidates completed two sets of oral interviews, with the final five candidates interviewed by a committee.

One open spot was created by the resignation of an officer, while the other is a new position.

Selectmen voted unanimously to approve both appointments Dec. 16.
