MANCHESTER-BY-THE-SEA — Town Administrator Gregory T. Federspiel announced that Manchester-by-the-Sea Police Chief Edward Conley has accepted the same role in nearby Gloucester and will be departing the town this spring.
“Chief Conley is a true professional with whom I enjoyed working. He made great strides in Manchester over more than two and a half years of service here, and Gloucester is getting a proven leader to take command of the largest police department on Cape Ann,” Town Administrator Federspiel said. “I want to thank Ed for his service to our community and I wish him the very best in his new role.”
Chief Conley arrived in Manchester in 2016 after 22 years with the Chelsea Police Department. During his tenure here, he oversaw the police department’s achievement of full state accreditation through the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission.
Chief Conley is expected to begin his new role in Gloucester in early April.
