Seabrook Police Department has a new full-time police officer, Michael Maloney, Jr., Chief Lee Bitomske told selectmen recently. He is the son of Charlene and the late Michael Maloney, the fallen Greenland police chief who died tragically in the line of duty on April 12, 2012.
Maloney, Jr., 24, has been with Seabrook Police for about a year, said Deputy Chief Michael Gallagher, getting field experience riding with seasoned officers while he went through the New Hampshire Police Academy, from which he graduated last month.
He is a graduate of Marshwood High School in Berwick, Maine, Gallagher said, and has a degree in criminal justice from Hesser College, now known as Mount Washington College.
“Mike has a quiet confidence about him,” Gallagher said. “He’s already had to step up physically during a couple of incidents, and he’s been right there when needed. He shows a lot of promise as a police officer.”
Married with two young children, Maloney, Jr. lives in Dover, NH, Gallagher said.

The parade will head down Walton Road, and end up at Rand Memorial Church for closing ceremonies via Washington and South Main street.
