Peabody police chief will retire June 1



“Bob Champagne has been a close friend for over 30 years and I have known him to be a dedicated servant to the people of Peabody, respected by local and national leaders in both law enforcement and the judiciary," District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said.

“Chief Champagne has always been a strong leader when it comes to keeping his community safe,” Attorney General Martha Coakley said. “Through his many years of dedicated public service, Chief Champagne has focused on the important goals of prevention and holding people accountable for their actions.”

Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis congratulated Champagne on his retirement and called him a mentor.
