Three long-time officers of the Hillsborough Township Police Department were recently moved up to their respective next steps in rank by the township committee, after serving a combined 66 years in the municipality’s police force.
During the Oct. 10 committee meeting, Mayor Carl Suraci swore Charlie Boyle in as the police department’s newest captain and Michael McMahon and Sean Carolan as the latest lieutenants.
Committeeman Frank DelCore, who also serves as the governing body’s liaison to public safety, said the promotions came as a result of recent vacancies within the department.
According to Suraci, Boyle has served in the Hillsborough Township Police Department for the last 23 years. Over that time, the new captain has worked in patrol division as a patrol officer and the services division in the training/community policing unit.
Boyle was appointed corporal in July 2002 and after being promoted to sergeant in April 2007, he was transferred back to the patrol division. he was later transferred to the traffic bureau in October 2014 and was assigned as the commander of the patrol division after being promoted to lieutenant in February 2016.
As a 20 year veteran of the police department, McMahon has worked in a number of divisions while serving a number of roles. As an officer, he worked in the patrol division and the services division in the traffic bureau.
McMahon was promoted to the rank of corporal in July 2009 and was subsequently transferred back to the patrol division. He was later promoted to sergeant in that division in February 2015. Roughly 13 months later, he was transferred to the services division to serve in the training bureau in March 2016 and then to the traffic bureau in February 2017.
Like the other two men to be promoted earlier this month, Carolan has served in the Hillsborough Township Police Department for 23 years. During that time, he has served in the patrol division as a patrol officer, as well as in the investigative division.
Carolan was appointed to the position of corporal in August 1999, where he stayed until April 2007 when he was promoted to the rank of sergeant in the investigative division. Since 2009, he has also served as a Deputy Coordinator for the Office of Emergency Management.
“It is with honor that we elevate these dedicated officers to the positions of lieutenant and captain,” DelCore said.
