PITTSFIELD - The Town of Pittsfield has a new police chief.

Harold "Pete" Bickmore was confirmed by the town council Tuesday night. He replaces longtime Pittsfield police chief Steven Emery who died unexpectedly last fall.


Bickmore was hired as the police chief in Ellsworth in April of 2016, resigning in December of the same year after being reprimanded by the city manager.


In a release sent by town manager Kathy Ruth said he was the unanimous vote of the selection committee and that Bickmore said he is excited to be part of the Pittsfield team.
