City councillors voted 9-0 to swear in a Marine Corps veteran as a police officer during Monday’s City Council meeting at City Hall.
Police Officer Daniel Armstrong took an oath of office offered by City Clerk Sergio Cornelio. His friend and fellow Marine, Adam Ivancic, who served with him in South Korea and the Philippines, pinned his badge.
“I’m really excited and grateful for the opportunity to serve,” Armstrong said. “I look forward to interacting with community members.”
He lives in Acton but plans to move to Everett. Armstrong graduated from the West Boylston Police Academy and earned a degree in criminology at St. Michael’s College in Vermont.
