John Parizeau Named Westfield Police Chief…WESTFIELD – The town council named acting Police Chief John Parizeau as the full-time police chief Tuesday night. Chief Parizeau told The Westfield Leader that he’s excited about the opportunity and “can’t wait to start.” He mentioned that one of his primary goals is to increase the size of the traffic bureau. “There are a lot of complaints about speeding and accidents. We need to replace the people who have left and increase the size.” In the past, Chief Parizeau has been integral in conducting traffic studies and surveys and “bringing the department up to present technology,” including installing computers in police cars. “I want to start a quick review of everything and see where our manpower is being used and shift around,” he said. The chief considers himself a “team player, who will not dictate from the top down.” He said he will not be “a chief who rules with an iron fist,” viewing the job as a team effort. He said he will evaluate the entire department and “judge everything and see what everyone can add to the department.” Ultimately, he forsees a “fair and impartial department.”
