STURBRIDGE — Peter Mullin, of Brattleboro, Vt., was appointed to the position of full-time police officer by the Board of Selectmen Tuesday, April 12.

Mullin became the 12th officer on a staff that also consists of two lieutenants and three sergeants.

Mullin, a native of Boston, attended the Boston Latin School before studying at Fairfield University in Connecticut, where he earned a degree in politics. After graduating in May 2004, he moved on to the Vermont State Police Academy.

"I knew in college that I would either go to the military or a state police academy," Mullin said. "I eventually decided that the academy was the best option for me."

Mullin spent seven years in the Vermont State Police, during which time he was assigned to three different police barracks. One of his barracks locations was in northern Vermont near the Canadian border, while another assignment brought him several hours south to Brattleboro. Since many Vermont towns do not have local police departments, Mullin and his colleagues became adept at covering both highway patrol and community policing assignments.
