Enos Steps In As Police Chief


Seekonk has a new Police Chief.
David Enos was sworn in by Town Clerk Florice Craig at Wednesday’s selectmen meeting. Enos, a 19 year member of the department who had served as Deputy Chief, succeeds Dean Isabella in the position.

Town Administrator Shawn Cadime said Enos “has shown outstanding leadership during challenging times and has a great understanding of our community and the department.”

Selectmen Chairman Justin Sullivan said the board wished to recognize “the integrity and professionalism that the Seekonk Police Department has shown in the past several weeks as the department transitions.”

“We are incredibly fortunate that we have someone willing to lead the department with the care and thoughtfulness needed during these times,” Sullivan added. “We are ready to move forward.”

The board voted January 18 to terminate Isabella’s employment contract, which still had nearly a year remaining. Isabella was hired in December 2020. On January 6, Cadime suspended Isabella and placed him on paid administrative leave.

Prior to Isabella’s termination, Cadime said the police department needed to undergo a “directional shift.”

Isabella is now suing the Town of Seekonk and the Board of Selectmen for breach of contract.
