This petition had 2,296 supporters


The citizens/residents of the town of Milford, Massachusetts which have signed the following petition hereby declare under our own free will that we oppose the decision made by the Selectmen during executive session on September 17, 2018 to not renew the contract of current Milford Police Department Chief, Thomas O’Loughlin. 

The residents of Milford have not been provided any information in reference to why the decision has been made to not renew the contract of a Chief of Police who has served the residents of this fine town with dignity, respect and selfless service. The decision made by the Selectmen affects ALL residents of Milford as well as the communities which surround our town as policing extends beyond our town borders as courtesies to other agencies. Chief O’Loughlin’s approach to policing especially in light of the opioid epidemic has made a difference in the lives of countless individuals and families mainly as a result of rehabilitation rather than lock up. The Milford Police Department has done exceptional work in varrying scope ranging  from criminal investigations to positive community involvement under Chief O’Loughlin’s leadership. As residents of Milford, we value the safety, security and the comfort of knowing our police department has  a true leader who truly cares about our lives and that of our children. 

All who have signed this petition support the renewal of Chief Thomas O’Loughlin’s contract so he may continue to serve the people of Milford as Chief of Police as he has done selflessly for many years prior. The signers of this petition also insist that that the town Selectmen hold a public hearing on this matter so that the citizens of Milford may attend and provide our voices to this matter as this decision will affect the lives of every woman, man and child who lives in our town.  Anything less is considered as an attempt to block the voice of the residents of this town ultimately creating a perception that the selectmen do not regard the voice of the people. We the people, demand to know the details of how this decision was concluded given the exceptional service and record of Chief Thomas O’Loughlin furthermore we as a town should have a say in this matter publicly. 

Very Respectfully, 

Residents of Milford, Massachusetts
