MBTA police chief getting ready to retire

Paul MacMillan

Transit Police Chief Paul MacMillan has told the MBTA he intends to retire. Although he has yet to set a specific date, the T is already advertising his position.

MacMillan is the first Transit Police chief to rise through the ranks of the force, which he joined as an officer in 1983.

In 1990, he became a sergeant; in 2004 a lieutenant and in 2005, a deputy chief. In 2008, the MBTA board of directors named him chief.

Transit Police, with some 260 officers, cover MBTA facilities in the large swath of eastern Massachusetts served by the T.

      Heh.

      Noticed this at least a month ago, I think, even directing it to a couple well-known reporters in the area. Before advertising the position, the MBTA was first seeking a contractor to conduct a "nation-wide search" for a new chief of police. They never followed up with it. Now UniversalHub beats the major publications to the punch on this, even when they were tipped off? Hehe.
